TFF-peptides (formerly P-domain peptides, trefoil factors) are typical secretory products of mucin-producing cells and are thought to influence the rheological properties of mucous gels. Here, the localization of these peptides in the human uterus was investigated. An analysis of TFF-peptides mRNA by the polymerase chain reaction revealed TFF3 mainly in the(More)
Prostate cancer is the most common malignant tumor in men. Radical prostatectomy, the most common surgical therapy, is typically accompanied by erectile dysfunction and incontinence due to severing of the axons of the plexus prostaticus. To date, no reconstructive therapy is available as the delicate network of severed nerve fibers preclude the(More)
[111 In-DTPA-D-Phe1]-octreotide scintigraphy has been shown to reveal somatostatin receptor-positive lesions in the majority of primary breast cancers. We have recently developed a panel of somatostatin receptor subtype-specific antibodies that effectively stain formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded breast cancer tissue. However, it is uncertain to what extend(More)
