We studied the expression of neurotrophins and their receptors in prostate cancer. Between 1990 and 1999, 48 prostate cancer specimens were obtained from patients undergoing radical prostatectomy, of whom 25 received neoadjuvant hormonal therapy (NHT) and 23 were untreated. The specimens were analyzed… CONTINUE READING
