Alkaline phosphatase - Definition


Definition


Alkaline phosphatase is sometimes referred to by its acronym: ALP, and constitutes a type of enzyme, that is to say a protein that enables chemical reactions. Alkaline phosphatase is present throughout the body, particularly in the liver, bones, and white blood cells, with blood tests enabling the assessment of alkaline phosphatase levels. With the results of this test it is generally possible to detect mild to severe liver or bone disease, with increased alkaline phosphatase levels being indicative of liver or bone cancer. It is worth noting that ALP levels increase during pregnancy.
