High plasma level of a eumelanin precursor, 6-hydroxy-5-methoxyindole-2-carboxylic acid.
The presence of 6-hydroxy-5-methoxyindole-2-carboxylic acid (6H5MI-2-C) in normal human urine was demonstrated by mass spectrometry. A quantitative method based on HPLC with fluorometric detection was developed for the determination of 6H5MI-2-C. In normal subjects the mean urinary concentration of 6H5MI-2-C was 38 mumol/mol of creatinine (range 6-76 mumol/mol).
Elevated levels of the phaeomelanin metabolite 5-S-cysteinyldopa and the eumelanin metabolite 6-hydroxy-5- methoxyindole-2-carboxylic acid in urine and serum have been shown in previous studies to correlate with disseminated malignant melanoma. Immunohistochemical detection of S100B protein is an acknowledged method for the diagnosis of malignant melanoma, and it has been suggested that rising serum levels of S100B protein are associated with the survival rate of patients with malignant melanoma.
