Abstract

The urinary levels of 11-deoxy-17-ketosteroids and estrogen receptor content in tumor tissues were determined in 76 patients with early breast cancer. Twenty-six postmenopausal and 16 premenopausal patients with estrogen receptor negative tumors were found to excrete subnormal amounts of 11-deoxy-17-ketosteroids while 22 postmenopausal and 12 premenopausal patients with estrogen receptor containing tumors excrete near normal levels of urinary 11-deoxy-17-ketosteroids.
