#2944 Soluble ST2 (sST2) Levels in the Management of Carcinoid Heart Disease in Patients with Neuroendocrine Cancer
Introduction: The identification of a sensitive biomarker to detect the presence and severity of carcinoid heart disease could allow more selective use of clinical and echocardiographic screening. ST2 is a protein belonging to the family of interleukin 1 receptors, present both in the isoform of transmembrane (ST2L) and in the soluble one (sST2). sST2 blocks the anti-inflammatory, anti-hypertrophic, and anti-fibrotic effects of cytokine IL-33 on the myocardium and recent studies have shown that sST2 levels increase in the blood of patients diagnosed with heart failure.
