    Serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels have been measured in 8 patients with hypercalcaemia associated with urological malignancy: 3 renal cell carcinomas, 2 adenocarcinomas of prostate, 2 transitional cell carcinomas of bladder and one transitional cell carcinoma of kidney. Five (63%) of these...

    The mediators and cellular effectors of inflammation are important constituents of the local environment of tumours. In some types of cancer, inflammatory conditions are present before a malignant change occurs. Conversely, in other types of cancer, an oncogenic change induces an inflammatory...
