Diverticular colon disease, taking into account the increase in the proportion of older people in the total population of the planet, is one of the most important problems of modern health care, due to the need for constant monitoring of patients due to the possible development of complications such as diverticulitis, perforation, bleeding and malignancy. From these positions, it becomes relevant to develop early prognostic criteria for the severity of the diverticular colon disease based on the study of the main indicators of proliferation, such as Kisspeptin (KiSS1), p53, chromogranin-a (CgA).
