BACKGROUND Recent data demonstrated that somatostatin (SRIH) analogues octreotide is effective in Graves' ophthalmopathy (GO), but their mechanism of action in GO is still unclear. In this study we investigated the expression of SRIH receptor (sst1-5) genes and the effect of octreotide treatment on primary cultures of fibroblasts established from… CONTINUE READING
