We have evaluated a new commercially available ELISA kit for determination of plasma chromogranin A with respect to its usefulness in the diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors, mainly pheochromocytoma. Serum and differently anticoagulated plasmas gave different chromogranin A concentrations. Control values (n = 21) were 18.9 +/- 5.8 units/l. Chromogranin A… CONTINUE READING
