Abstract

Exogenous epidermal growth factor (or somatostatin) can stimulate (or inhibit) proliferation of pancreatic cancer cells, with a corresponding decrease (or increase) of the saturation index of the cell membrane and up-regulation (or down-regulation) of insulin receptor expression. By measuring the saturation index and insulin receptor numbers on the cell membrane it may be possible to evaluate the curative effects of treatment on pancreatic cancer at an early time.
