Various endocrine-related tumours contain large numbers of high-affinity somatostatin receptors. 123I-labelled tyr-3-octreotide (tyr-3-SMS 201-995, a synthetic derivative of somatostatin) was used to localise such tumours in vivo with a gamma-camera. Positive scans were obtained for two meningiomas, two gastrinomas, and one carcinoid; negative scans were obtained for one insulinoma (in which unlabelled octreotide had no effect on insulin levels), one phaeochromocytoma, one adrenal carcinoma… CONTINUE READING
