Testosterone (T) is the major exogenous stimulus for the growth of prostatic carcinoma. It is believed that the proliferative action of T may be mediated by locally expressed growth modulatory factors. Recent evidence from our laboratory suggests that a LHRH (or a LHRH-like) loop might be expressed in human prostatic tumor cells. To verify this hypothesis… CONTINUE READING
