    Abstract : Monoclonal antibodies generated by immunization with human adrenocortical cells reacted with the normal adrenal cortex, adrenocortical adenomas and carcinomas, but failed to stain a variety of normal tissues, renal cell carcinoma, and pheocromocytomas.

    Abstract : Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are characterized by cellular overexpression of somatostatin receptors (SSTR), which allows for the use of radiolabeled somatostatin analogs (SSA) for both imaging and therapy. Because NETs often are diagnosed at a metastatic stage, curative surgery is not possible. READ MORE
