N of the primary tumor. Foregut and midgut are more often produce abnormal levels of bioactive hormones and proteins. Hindgut carcinoid tumors are lest often associated with most markers but will express chromogranin a. Most commonly measured markers are chromogranin and 5hiaa. These makers are strongly correlated with tumor burden and often mirror one another in their behavior. Chromogranin a (cga) is a general marker associated with all carcinoid tumors. order cheap viagra 自動車保険 It is a protein produced by tumor cells and released. Chromogranin a is associated with other hormones and may be involved in their regulation. It may also be associated with cell adhesion in metastatic disease. It is deposited directly into the vascular compartment and measured in the serum. Its function is not entirely understood; it is not responsible for causing symptoms. There is a normal level of chromogranin a in the blood, and the range currently is less than 39ng/l.. Abnormal levels can vary form forty to the thousands. The sensitivity of the test for cga is about 80%, this means that 80% of the time abnormal levels are correctly associated with disease. The specificity of the test is about 95%, this means that 95% of the time if the cga level is normal and there is no disease present. Chromogranin a levels can be spuriously elevated with sitting up oppose to lying down, hypertension, strenuous activity, pregnancy, interestingly, we seen often doubling of values prior to radiographic evidence of disease progression, suggesting that doubling of values maybe more prognostic for evaluating progression of disease where elevated levels are prognostic for disease.

Welcome to the website of the Nene Valley Astronomical Society.
 
Based in East Northamptonshire, the Nene Valley Astronomical Society (NVAS) exists to promote and advance the science of astronomy in this area, both amongst it's members and the public.
 
The society holds a number of meetings and events during the course of each month with meetings held on the first Thursday of each month at Sudborough Village Hall, Main Street, Sudborough and on the third Monday of each month at Chelveston Village Hall, Caldecott Road, Chelveston. At the meetings you will here a range of guest speakers who are expert in their chosen fields interspersed with presentations by our members.   In addition regular weekly observing sessions (Starnights) are held on clear Friday evenings at Chelveston Village Hall.  All our meetings and events begin at 8.00pm.
 
Our members range from those who just have a casual interest in astronomy right up to more advanced amateur astronomers.  We are a friendly society, with members always willing to help out newcomers to the subject, for example setting up a new telescope.
 
The Nene Valley Astronomical Society is a free to join society - we do not charge a up front membership fee - instead members pay a small admission fee of £1 to each meeting that they go along to.  We believe that this is a much fairer way of running a society and ensures that members only pay for meetings and events which they attend.
 
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website.  If you have any questions or require any further information about the society or astronomy in general then please contact the groups co-ordinator, Steve Williams on 01933 650331 or
