Chromogranin-A and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide: an excellent pair of biomarkers for diagnostics in patients with neuroendocrine tumor.


PURPOSE For the last decade chromogranin-A (CgA) has been a well-established marker for neuroendocrine tumor (NET), and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) has been a useful marker for left ventricular dysfunction.
