Featured This Week: Catecholamines

If you’re a pheo patient, or if you know one, you’ve probably heard a lot about catecholamines. But, do you know what they are, and how they relate to pheochromocytoma?

During last November’s Pheochromocytoma and Paraganglioma 2015 International Conference, Dr. Vitaly Kantorovich presented up-to-date information on catecholamines, and why both their levels and biochemical composition are important to identification of pheochromocytoma and the genetic mutations associated with these tumors.

The conference at which Dr. Kantorovich spoke was organized by the Pheo Para Troopers, who have this video and many others from the conference hosted on their site.  The Pheo Para Troopers is the largest patient-centered organization dealing exclusively with pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, and is a wonderful resource for patients and their families,  as well as healthcare professionals.

The videos for the conference are exclusively supported by the Firefox browser.
