OSTEOCALCIN; BONE Gla PROTEIN (BGP)
Osteocalcin is the most important non-collagen protein in bone matrix. It is a marker of bone osteoblastic activity and is considered indicative of bone turnover rather than bone formation. This assay helps in monitoring and assessing effectiveness of anti-resorptive therapy in patients treated for Osteopenia, Osteoporosis and Paget’s disease. It is also used as an adjunct in the diagnosis of medical conditions associated with increased bone turnover like bone metastasis, Primary hyperparathyroidism & Renal osteodystrophy.
