PURPOSE Steroid hormone receptor expression has an essential role in cancer of the prostate and breast but there is only limited experience with renal cell carcinoma (RCC), especially regarding prognostic and therapeutic impact. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 188 cases of RCC were stained immunohistochemically for the expression of estrogen (ER), progesterone (PR) and androgen (AR) receptors using a tissue microarray technique. Nuclear steroid hormone receptor immunoreactivities were… CONTINUE READING
