Inhibition of growth of androgen-independent DU-145 prostate cancer in vivo by luteinising hormone-releasing hormone antagonist Cetrorelix and bombesin antagonists RC-3940-II and RC-3950-II.
The aim of this study was to test the antagonist of LH-RH (Cetrorelix), agonist [D-Trp6]LH-RH (triptorelin) and new bombesin antagonists RC-3940-II and RC-3950-II for their effect on the growth of anExpand

Growth inhibition of experimental pancreatic cancers and sustained reduction in epidermal growth factor receptors during therapy with hormonal peptide analogs
Abstract Reduction in receptors for epidermal growth factor (EGF) in cancers appears to be one of the principal mechanisms through which peptide hormone analogs can inhibit tumor growth. In thisExpand

Down-regulation of pituitary receptors for luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH) in rats by LH-RH antagonist Cetrorelix.
Antagonists of luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LH-RH), unlike the LH-RH agonists, suppress gonadotropins and sex steroid secretion immediately after administration, without initial stimulatoryExpand

Inhibition of in vivo proliferation of androgen-independent prostate cancers by an antagonist of growth hormone-releasing hormone.
Tumour-inhibitory effects of a new antagonist of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GH-RH), MZ-4-71, were evaluated in nude mice bearing androgen-independent human prostate cancer cell lines DU-145Expand

Inhibition of growth of human small cell and non-small cell lung carcinomas by antagonists of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GH-RH).
Insulin-like growth factors-I and-II (IGF-I and IGF-II) may be involved in the proliferation of human lung carcinomas. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of two potentExpand

Chronic administration of the luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) antagonist cetrorelix decreases gonadotrope responsiveness and pituitary LHRH receptor messenger ribonucleic acid levels in
Continuous exposure to LHRH or its agonistic analogs results in a reduction of LHRH receptor sites and messenger RNA (mRNA) transcripts as well as in desensitization of the pituitary gonadotropes. ToExpand
