Weinstein examined CgA staining in prostatectomy specimens and correlated the degree of staining with the prognosis [9]. In a multivariate analysis, the extent of NE presence indeed predicted progression of the cancer; a finding also described for CgA serum levels [10,11]. Elevated CgA values correlate with poor prognosis and are minimally influenced by either endocrine therapy or chemotherapy [12]. Cohen found an extremely high correlation between NE cells in histology and prognosis. In histology, 91% of patients with tumour-specific death showed NE cells inside the prostate cancer cell population, whereas in only 11% of survived patients, NE cells were found in the cancer [13].

Modulating the interactions on tumour growth of non-cancerous tissues with, for example, bisphosphonates may prove superior in the treatment of prostate and breast cancer, compared with the relatively indiscriminate approach of cytotoxic chemotherapy [26].
