About Procollagen 3 peptide (p3np)
What is procollagen-3 peptide (P3NP)?
Procollagen-3 peptide (P3NP) is a product of collagen formation. P3NP can be used as a marker of collagen turnover and to assess liver health as P3NP is typically deposited in association with fibrosis or cirrhosis of the liver. Methotrexate, a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, may lead to liver fibrosis over a prolonged period.
Why take the test?
This test measures the level of P3NP in the blood and can be used to assess liver fibrosis or cirrhosis.
