Histochemical Detection of Steroid Binding Sites in Human Renal Tissue and Renal Cell Carcinoma: A Preliminary Report of Work in Progress
The degree of interest in the hormonal milieu as a factor influencing the natural history of renal cell carcinoma is, perhaps, out of proportion to what is warranted by the cumulative experience. Controversy regarding this topic might best be relegated to the medical equivalent of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing”. As a minor offshoot of our binding site studies involving prostatic cancer (described in another section of this book: see ‘Histochemical determination of androgen binding in prostatic adenocarcinoma: clinical correlation’) we succumbed to this apparently irresistable phenomenon. The following is a preliminary report on work in progress.
