The high sensitivity of pentagastr in stimulation in detecting pr imary or metastatic medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) suggests widespread expression of the corresponding receptor type on human MTC. Indeed, autoradiographic studies demonstrated cholecystokinin (CCK)-B/gastrin receptors not only in >90% of MTCs but in a high percentage of small cell lung… (More)
