FCM Analysis GR in Steroid-Treatment Patients
Monitoring the GR with a GR-MoAb and FITC-Dex probes by FCM would be useful and convenient in determination GR before the steroid treatment in clinical, especially in steroid resistant states, in order to design more efficient clinical treatment protocols.
