#1150 Platelet Serotonin But Not Dopamine Concentrations Are Lower in Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor and Renal Cell Carcinoma Patients Compared to Healthy Individuals.
Introduction: Platelets carry VEGF-A, serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin stimulates and dopamine inhibits tumor angiogenesis. We hypothesized that platelets are activated in tumor vasculature and release angiogenic factors, resulting in lower platelet serotonin and dopamine.

#1917 Clinical Correlates of Discrepant Results of Chromogranin a versus Serotonin Markers in Patients with Neuroendocrine Tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors lead to elevated chromogranin A levels and elevated serotonin markers (urinary 5HIAA and platelet serotonin). These markers are employed for diagnosis and monitoring.
