Currently, a few targets such as estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), somatostatin receptor (SSTR), and the gastrin releasing(More)

Under this light, it is worrisome that roughly 80% of patients included in our cohort received this treatment (and were exposed to the risk of treatment-related side-effects) without any benefits in terms of cancer-specific survival at 8-year follow-up [2]. These observations have also profound(More)
