Chromogranins, including chromogranin A (CgA), are members of the granin family of neuroendocrine secretory proteins located in the secretory vesicles of neurons and endocrine cells.
The authors want to thank Novartis Pharma AG for their support in providing Chromogranin A assay kits throughout the study.
Postoperatively, chromogranin A was drawn and elevated at 60 ng/mL (normal <36.
Diagnosis can be made by the clinical picture and supported by imaging, endoscopy, or tumor markers such as chromogranin A and serotonin.
Ugo De Giorgi recently published two papers highlighting another aspect of the relationship between chromogranin A (CgA) and prostate cancer.
Using the range established by the EDI Chromogranin A ELISA Kit, the patients were divided into three groups based on baseline CgA levels: normal CgA (<120 ug/ml), under 3 time normal (360 ug/ml).
Chromogranin A is a secretory protein found in elevated concentrations in neuroendrocrine tumours like carcinoid tumours, pheochromocytoma or medullary thyroid cancer.
M2 PHARMA-August 7, 2014-Chinese study shows Chromogranin A is reliable serum diagnostic biomarker for PNETs but not for insulinomas
A complete metastatic work-up was then conducted including serum markers (serotonin, Chromogranin A, urine 5-HIAA) and a total body octreotide scan, which were negative.
Immunohistochemical studies were positive for synaptophysin and CD56 (NCAM), chromogranin A, epithelial antigen, and CAM 5.
Human chromogranin A (CgA), a member of the granin family, is an acidic 439-amino acid protein with a widespread expression in endocrine cells and neurons (1-3).
