Book Description

Current Topics in Experimental Endocrinology, Volume 3 covers the relationship between the endocrine system and some types of tumors. The book discusses the perspectives, pitfalls, and potentials of tissue culture in endocrine research; the tumor types associated with ectopic adrenocorticotropin hormone secretion, particularly nonendocrine tumors; and the hormonal control of breast cancer growth in women and rats. The text also describes the status of steroid receptors in breast tumors; the physiopathological aspects of prolactin secretion in patients with pituitary tumors; and the biochemical endocrinology of prostatic tumors. The ectopic production of human chorionic gonadotropin and its alpha- and beta-subunits is also considered. Endocrinologists, oncologists, chemists, gynecologists, and students taking related courses will find the book invaluable.
