Fast Urine 5-HIAA ELISA Fast Urine 5-HIAA ELISA 5-HIAA ELISA: Standard curve

Fast Urine 5-HIAA ELISA

5-HIAA (5-Hydroxyindoleacetic acid) is the main metabolite of serotonin. Urinary excretion of 5-HIAA is routinely used as a surrogate biomarker to diagnose and monitor carcinoid tumors. In the cerebrospinal fluid, low levels of 5-HIAA have been found to be associated with agressive behavior and suicide by violent means.
