In the patients with carcinoma of gastrointestinal tract the amine oxidase activity was decreased 2-fold and in the patients with carcinoma of lung it was decreased 4-fold as compared with controls. At the same time, content of serotonin was increased both in blood plasma and in blood platelets of the patients. The increase in content of serotonin depends on localization of the tumors.
