The concentration and content of zinc in the prostatic lobes and in periurethral adenomas, when present, were determined in an autopsy series of 45 adult males by atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The zinc distribution within the prostate was found to be related to the anatomically defined lobes, the dorsal lobes having the highest, the medial lobes the lowest and the lateral lobes intermediate zinc concencentrations. The differences in zinc concentration between the lobes were leveled in… CONTINUE READING
