Abstract

Immunoperoxidase staining of 125 gastric carcinomas showed pepsinogen in tumour cells of seven (5·6%) cases. Carcinomas from other sites were negative. The phenomenon is probably too uncommon to be useful in identifying secondary carcinomas as gastric in origin, but it is of some biological interest.
