Peptides and Their Receptors in Oat Cell Carcinoma
Oat cell carcinoma or small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) comprises about 25% of the 110,000 new cases of malignant lung cancer each year (Bunn et al., 1977). Many of the patients are responsive to chemo- and/or radiation therapy, but many of the diagnosed cases are far advanced, with the cancer having undergone metastases from the lung to the liver, lymph nodes, bone, and/or brain.
