Abstract [en]

Aim: To examine whether N-terminal proCNP concentrations in serum is associated with bone destruction in patients with multiple myeloma. Materials and methods: N-terminal proCNP and biochemical bone markers were measured in 153 patients. Radiographic bone disease and skeletal-related events were evaluated at specific time-points. Results: N-terminal proCNP concentrations increased with age. High N-terminal proCNP concentrations were associated with high-risk disease and renal impairment. Renal function explained 22% of the variation. N-terminal proCNP concentrations correlated with serum bone ALP and serum PINP, but lacked association with bone resorption markers, radiographic bone disease and skeletal-related events. Conclusion: Serum N-terminal proCNP are associated with bone formation activity in patients with multiple myeloma, but should be interpreted with caution in patients with renal impairment.
