AIM Somatostatin and its analogues may suppress the growth of various tumor cells. However, the effect of octreotide on growth of gastric adenocarcinoma is still largely unknown. This study was to explore if octreotide could inhibit the growth of gastric adenocarcinoma and its probable mechanisms. METHODS Proliferation of gastric cancer cell line affected by octreotide was determined by (3)H-thymidine incorporation. After xenografts of human gastric cancer were implanted orthotopically in… CONTINUE READING
