Thymidine Kinase Type 1 (TK1) is a DNA proliferation marker that has been shown in a number of human and animal studies to be highly elevated in Lymphoma. High cellular turnover, especially in aggressive & poorly differentiated lymphoma, gives lymphoma a robust TK1 response that is readily picked up in blood serum. Measurement of TK1 activity can be a rule-in for lymphoma in the suspected horse.
