Biochemical and Morphologic Studies of the Prostate Gland in Men Subjected to Radical Cystectomy
Whole human prostate glands obtained from patients undergoing radical cystectomy were dissected into three paired lobes and the various parts of the gland were subjected to biochemical and morphologic examination. No distinct differences were found between the prostate lobes in regard to content of divalent cations, acid phosphatase and ATPase. These findings were concordant with observations at light microscopy. Hence, despite discernible change in cellular appearance, no distinct border was observed between lobes indicating separate “compartments”
