O ne prostatic cell type, whose sole role is regulatory, which produces several different growth regulatory factors, which is abundantly present in all prostates, and which co-proliferates as a malignant epithelial component in most, if not all, prostatic adenocarcinomas has been almost totally ignored until very recently. This cell is the neuroendocrine (NE) cell (also known as the endocrineparacrine or APUD cell) (di Sant’Agnese, I 992a).
