Abstract

Long-term studies have demonstrated that cancer cells are
characterised by different metabolic processes and receptor
expression systems. These differences are known as cancer
phenotypes. Understanding these differences is the key to the
development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
Recent reports indicate that some tumour cells have increased
expression of receptors for somatostatin, bombesin, glucagon-
like peptide 1, substance P, vasoactive intestinal peptides,
or cholecystokinin.
