02/01/2011 - "To investigate the value of plasma chromogranin A (CgA) in the diagnosis of neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), and to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of plasma CgA in different gastrointestinal pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP NETs). "
01/01/2007 - "Our previous study demonstrated that Ca(2+)-permeable cation channels play a role in IGF-1-induced secretion of chromogranin A in human neuroendocrine tumor (NET) cell line BON [Mergler et al.: Neuroendocrinology 2006;82:87-102]. "

06/29/1998 - "This may be due to an improved endoscopic technique and the use of specific immunostains, such as chromogranin A, which in our case was essential in avoiding the diagnostic pitfall of an adenocarcinoma. "

10/01/2013 - "Upon lobectomy and tumor resection, the chromogranin A levels normalized and the diarrhea resolved completely. "
06/01/1999 - "We report the case of a 63-yr-old man who had severe secretory diarrhea associated with colonic adenocarcinoma, with a prominent signet ring cell component and numerous endocrine cells as demonstrated by positive chromogranin-A staining. "
12/01/2014 - "Chromogranin A levels decreased from 460 to 132 ng/mL. The patient reported complete resolution of abdominal pain within 2 weeks, but only mild improvement in flushing and diarrhea. "
01/01/2012 - "There were 52 NET patients in group 1 and 109 patients in group 2. The incidence of small intestinal NET was 0.3/100.000/year in period 1 and 0.7/100.000/year in period 2. There was no difference in median chromogranin A levels (8709 versus 2381 pmol/L, P = 0.107), presence of liver metastases (56% versus 44%), clinical symptoms (flushing/diarrhea), or Ki67 index (2% versus 2%), between the two time periods.
