Effect of Treatment with Prolonged-Release Somatostatin Analogues on the Concentration of Serum Fibrosis Markers in Patients with Carcinoid Syndrome. Abstract #1886

Introduction: A fibrosis is a major local and/or distant complication of neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) of the small intestine secreting serotonin. Tumour cells produce connective tissue growth factor CTGF and transforming growth factor TGFα and TGFβ which locally stimulate fibrosis and cause distant fibrosis.
Aim(s): Assessment the level of serum fibrosis markers CTGF and TGFβ in patients with carcinoid syndrome before and after 12 months treatment with prolonged-release somatostatin analogues
Materials and methods: 30 patients with carcinoid syndrome, the serum level of serotonin, CTGF and TGFβ and 24-hour urinary 5-hydroxy indoles acetic acid (5-HIAA) before and after 12 months of treatment with somatostatin analogues were the subject of researches.The control group consisted of 20 healthy individuals

#104 Myocardial motion abnormalities in patients with carcinoid disease without overt carcinoid heart disease
Introduction: Cardiac abnormalities occur in 15-70% of patients with carcinoid disease, typified by fibrosis of the right-sided valves. Myocardial motion abnormalities in subjects without overt carcinoid heart disease have not been previously described. Tissue Doppler Imaging (TDI) allows quantative analysis of myocardial motion. We used this technique to investigate whether myocardial motion is reduced, suggesting fibrosis, in patients with carcinoid disease.

#1272 Telotristat Etiprate Appears to Halt Carcinoid Heart Disease
Introduction: Carcinoid Heart Disease (CHD) is a serious complication of the Carcinoid Syndrome (in as many as 50% of patients during the course of their disease). 46% of cases operated with bioprosthetic valves develop recurrent carcinoid valvulopathy on the newly implanted tissue valves. Until now, only mechanical prosthetic valves avoid recurrent fibrosis.
