Objective. Parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) and its mRNA have been found to be expressed in a variety of human tumors including breast, prostate, colon, lung, renal and ovarian cancers. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the expression of PTH/PTHrP receptor and ligand in human glial tumors.
