Somatostatin analogs have been administered to patients with pancreatic endocrine tumors in an attempt to inhibit hormone hypersecretion and prevent tumor growth. It is speculated that their efficacy is correlated with the expression of specific subtypes of somatostatin receptors. The aim of this study was to immunohistochemically evaluate the expression of somatostatin receptor subtypes in human pancreatic endocrine tumors, and to determine whether the expression of these subtypes is… CONTINUE READING
