• Survival
  • Recent European investigations have shown that persistently elevated (>50 pg/mL) plasma neurokinin A levels are associated with poor short-term survival in patients with midgut neuroendocrine neoplasms. (ovid.com)
  • We hypothesized that American patients with persistently elevated plasma neurokinin A levels (>50 pg/mL) will also have a poor short-term survival. (ovid.com)
  • Patients were grouped according to their plasma neurokinin A values, and survival rates were calculated. (ovid.com)

  • patients
  • OBJECTIVE : Patients with mutations of neurokinin B (NKB) and its receptor show hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism, but there is little evidence for the importance of this pathway in reproductive function in normal men, or its functional hierarchy with kisspeptin. (up.ac.za)
