Glucocorticoid receptor expression in advanced non-small cell lung cancer: clinicopathological correlation and in vitro effect of glucocorticoid on cell growth and chemosensitivity.

Abstract

The current study aimed to immunohistochemically examine the tumor glucocorticoids receptor (GR) expression in patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to examine the effect of glucocorticoids (GCs) on the in vitro NSCLC cells growth and chemosensitivity. High GR expression was detected in 51% of the tumor specimens. The difference in… (More)
