The specificity of androgen receptor in hepatocellular carcinoma and the liver was investigated using auto-radiographic techniques. Partial hepatectomy was carried out on 11 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma and associated parenchymal disease of the liver. Androgen receptors were assayed biochemically for hepatocellular carcinoma and the surrounding liver in all cases. Estrogen receptor was also measured in five patients. In eight patients, fresh resected specimens as thick as 3 mm were… CONTINUE READING
