Significance of Prostaglandins in Tumour Growth

  • Jennifer A. C. Sykes

Abstract

In recent years, attention has been focused on the possible role of prostaglandins (PGs) in tumour physiology. They have been implicated in such aspects as cell replication, bone resorption and hypercalcaemia as well as being potentially responsible for many of the symptoms associated with malignancy.
