Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses of a sample of body fluids (e.g., serum) to determine the placenta-like alkaline phosphatase (PLAP) enzyme, an enzyme synthesized by the trophoblast that is typically found in high levels in serum of pregnant women. High levels of PLAP are also found in serum as the result of several malignancies, such as ovarian, lung, and gastrointestinal cancer as well as in Hodgkin's disease.
