Supplementary Material

Literature review about the predictive value of short- or long-term response to SSA treatment by the SSTRs expression. RT-PCR, IHC, and/or WB were used to detect the expression of SSTRs. SSTR, somatostatin receptor; RT-PCR, reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction; IHC, immunohistochemistry; WB, western blot; GH, growth hormone; IGF-1, insulin-like growth factor 1; OGTT, oral glucose tolerance test; SSA, somatostatin analogues.
