Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (TRAP) 5b is a new marker of bone resorption that is unaffected by renal dysfunction. The significance of TRAP5b was assessed in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Serum concentrations of TRAP5b and cross-linked N-telopeptide of type I collagen (NTX) were determined as bone resorption markers, and those of bone alkaline phosphatase (BAP) and intact osteocalcin (OC) were measured as bone formation markers in 58 HD patients. Bone mineral density (BMD) was measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry twice in the distal third of the radius, with a 2-year interval between measurements. Serum TRAP5b correlated significantly with BAP, intact OC, intact parathyroid hormone (PTH), and especially serum NTX. TRAP5b, NTX, BAP, and intact OC all correlated significantly with BMD at the time of the second measurement; and TRAP5b, NTX, and intact OC, but not BAP and intact PTH, correlated significantly with the annual change in BMD during the 2-year period. Among the bone markers, patients in the highest tertile for serum TRAP5b and intact OC showed the fastest rate of cortical bone loss. The sensitivity and specificity for detection of rapid bone loss were 57.9% and 76.9%, respectively, for serum TRAP5b. Measurement of serum TRAP5b, as well as intact OC, may be a clinically relevant assay for estimation of bone metabolic status in HD patients, although serum intact OC accumulates in uremic serum.
