The Des-Gamma Carboxy Prothrombin (DCP), also known as Protein Induced by Vitamin K Absence or Antagonist-II (PIVKA-II), Serum Test is a specialized diagnostic assessment available at DNA Labs UAE. This test is designed to measure the levels of Des-Gamma Carboxy Prothrombin in the blood, which is a non-functional precursor of prothrombin. Elevated levels of DCP/PIVKA-II are often associated with liver dysfunction and can be particularly indicative of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), a common type of liver cancer.

The test is crucial for individuals at risk of liver diseases or for those being monitored for the progression or treatment response of liver cancer. By detecting abnormal levels of DCP, healthcare providers can make more informed decisions regarding the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment strategies for affected patients.

At DNA Labs UAE, the Des-Gamma Carboxy Prothrombin (DCP/PIVKA-II) Serum Test is offered at a cost of 820 AED. The facility ensures accurate and reliable results, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and methodologies to support patient care and disease management.

DES-GAMMA CARBOXY PROTHROMBIN DCPPIVKA II SERUM Test

About the Test

The DES-Gamma Carboxy Prothrombin (DCP) /PIVKA II Serum test is a blood test used to detect the presence of abnormal forms of prothrombin in the blood. Prothrombin is a protein produced by the liver that plays a crucial role in blood clotting.

In certain conditions, such as liver cancer or liver cirrhosis, the liver may produce abnormal forms of prothrombin known as DCP or PIVKA II. These abnormal forms of prothrombin are not fully functional and can lead to an increased risk of bleeding or abnormal blood clotting.

The DCP/PIVKA II Serum test measures the levels of DCP or PIVKA II in the blood, indicating the presence of liver disease or liver cancer. It is often used as a tumor marker for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which is the most common type of liver cancer.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

The DES-Gamma Carboxy Prothrombin (DCP) /PIVKA II Serum test is typically ordered if a person has risk factors for liver disease or liver cancer, such as chronic hepatitis B or C infection, alcohol abuse, or a family history of liver cancer. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of treatment for liver cancer or to detect its recurrence.

Results of the test are usually reported as a numerical value, with higher values indicating a higher risk of liver disease or liver cancer. However, it is important to note that while the DCP/PIVKA II Serum test is a useful tool in the diagnosis and monitoring of liver disease and liver cancer, it is not specific to these conditions. Elevated levels of DCP or PIVKA II can also be seen in other conditions, such as vitamin K deficiency or disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Therefore, the test results should always be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings.
