PAP Blood Test - More Information

The prostatic acid phosphatase test, also known as a PAP lab test, acid phosphatase blood test, and PSAP blood test, measures the prostatic acid phosphatase blood level.

Prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP), also known as prostatic specific acid phosphatase (PSAP), is produced by the prostate. The PAP enzyme is thought to be necessary for liquifying semen in men. PAP blood levels are typically increased with current and past prostate cancer (particularly metastasized forms). Also, PSAP levels might be increased in a number of other conditions, including bone disease, red blood cell diseases, hyperparthyroidism and multiple myeloma. While prostatic acid phosphatase is a helpful lab test in evaluating certain conditions, the total PSA test and PSA free and total test are more useful for general prostate health screening.
