Abstract

Data on the immunohistochemical expression and localization of the five somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) have been obtained by our group in separate studies concerning the many faces of prostate cancer (PCa), its precursor high grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) and normal epithelium (Nep). This publication highlights the key findings, with special reference to: normal prostate epithelium; untreated HGPIN and PCa, both clinically and incidentally detected; PCa with NE differentiation; HGPIN and PCa following complete androgen ablation (CAA); and hormone refractory (HR) PCa. Taken together, the data obtained in these investigations demonstrate that SSTR profiling in individual patients with HGPIN and the multifaceted PCa is feasible and is of relevance to better tailor the somatostatin analogue-based treatment.
