10]. 39 in the post-menopausal group (Figure 3) [10]. It appears, then, that ERc and PRc are predictors of survival in premenopausal cervical carcinoma patients. 9. 3. These preliminary data were somewhat controversial and have been subject to much discussion. The treatment differences in either group could have skewed the receptor positive group towards better survival or a relatively large group of good prognosis patients could have been present in the receptor positive group. Therefore, another study looking in more detail at homogenously treated stage IB cervical carcinoma noted statistically significant differences in survival relative to receptor status [17].

Each assay was completed in duplicate or triplicate depending on the amount of tissue available. The intraassay and interassay coefficient of variation were 6 and 8 % respectively. The technique is sensitive to 2 fmol/mg cytosolic protein. 86, respectively). All data included in this report are from the single saturation point method. Clinical correlates Mean receptor levels were grouped according to traditional clinical parameters of stage, histologic type and grade, and menopausal status (Table 1).
