Creative Biolabs has successfully developed SARS, MERS and other anti-viral antibodies in the past to assist scientific research. Facing the difficult COVID-19, Creative Biolabs actively invests in antibody development to assist researchers to better understand the characteristics of 2019-nCoV and drug development. Currently, Creative Biolabs is proud to offer an extensive line of research antibodies to support the study of SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, several of which were validated using virus-infected cell lysates.

Carcinoid

Fig.1 Carcinoid

Carcinoid (also carcinoid tumor) is a slow-growing type of neuroendocrine tumor developing from the cells of the neuroendocrine system. The tumors of the midgut (jejunum, ileum, cecum and appendix) are related to carcinoid syndrome. Carcinoid tumors overwhelmingly show as malignant tumor of the appendix, but they are most commonly related to the small intestine, and they can also be found in the stomach and rectum. They are considered to grow in the liver, but this finding is normally a display of metastatic disease from a primary carcinoid occurring somewhere in the body. They have a very mind growth rate compared to most malignant tumors. The median age at diagnosis for all patients with neuroendocrine tumors is 63 years. As the metastatic potential of a coincidental carcinoid is probably low, the current recommendation is for follow up in 3 months with MRI or CT, labs for tumor markers such as serotonin can be applied.
