These volumes represent the "state-of-the-art" in morphological methods for detection of steroid receptors. In Volume I we have attempted to collect current available methods and experimental approahes which might be useful in solving present enigmas. The background and recent advances presented are intended to stimulate further experimentation and new innovations, and spur clinical trials by all investigators with an interest in steroid hormones, cell biology, and clinical oncology.
