ABSTRACT

Human mammary gland and tumours derived from it contain individual receptors for oestradiol1) and for dihydrotestosterone. Analysis of 97 mammary cancers by agargel electrophoresis revealed a widely varying pattern of simultaneous occurrence in different concentration ratios (46), sole presence of oestradiol receptor (23) or dihydrotestosterone receptor (8) and absence of both receptors (18). The relevance of the results is discussed and the need for an extensive cooperative study is emphasized.
