Down-regulation of Smad3 results in the formation of tumors both in vivo and in vitro. However, little is known about the effect of Smad3 on adrenocorticotropic hormone -secreting pituitary adenomas (ACTH-PAs). Our objective was to study the expression and effect of Smad3 in ACTH-PAs and its possible mechanisms.

Here, we present a case of pituitary adenoma producing adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) in a 19-year-old woman. The patient was admitted to neurosurgery clinic because of a headache and decreased vi...
To evaluate the protein expression of somatostatin receptor (SSTR) 2, SSTR5 and dopamine D2 receptor (DA2R)-targets of somatostatin analogs and dopamine agonists-in normal canine pituitary and canine ...
ACTH-secreting pituitary adenomas give rise to a severe endocrinological disorder, i.e., Cushing's disease, with multifaceted clinical presentation and treatment outcomes. Experimental studies suggest...
giant pituitary adenomas (GPAs) are benign tumours with a diameter ≥ 4 cm . They can cause symptoms and signs due to the possible hyper-secretion of one or more pituitary hormones, and involvemen...
Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH)-secreting pituitary adenomas (TSHomas) are uncommon, and majority of the patients present with symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Herein, we report the first case of TSHoma...
Glucose fluctuations present not only in patients with diabetes mellitus but also in subjects with normal glucose tolerance or impaired glucose regulation. People with Growth Hormone-Secre...
RATIONALE: Rosiglitazone may help pituitary tumor cells become more like normal cells, and to grow and spread more slowly. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well rosiglitazone ...
In this study, the investigators hypothesize that upfront gamma knife radiosurgery with drug therapy is superior in the treatment of growth hormone-secreting pituitary tumors after primary...
Cushing's disease is characterized by the existence of a benign pituitary tumor developed from corticotropic cells responsible for excessive ACTH secretion. This results in hypercorticism ...
Clinically nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma remains the only pituitary tumor subtype for which no effective medical therapy is available or recommended. We will evaluate the use of cabergo...
A pituitary adenoma which secretes ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN, leading to CUSHING DISEASE.
A syndrome characterized by HYPERPIGMENTATION, enlarging pituitary mass, visual defects secondary to compression of the OPTIC CHIASM, and elevated serum ACTH. It is caused by the expansion of an underlying ACTH-SECRETING PITUITARY ADENOMA that grows in the absence of feedback inhibition by adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS, usually after ADRENALECTOMY.
Neoplasms which arise from or metastasize to the PITUITARY GLAND. The majority of pituitary neoplasms are adenomas, which are divided into non-secreting and secreting forms. Hormone producing forms are further classified by the type of hormone they secrete. Pituitary adenomas may also be characterized by their staining properties (see ADENOMA, BASOPHIL; ADENOMA, ACIDOPHIL; and ADENOMA, CHROMOPHOBE). Pituitary tumors may compress adjacent structures, including the HYPOTHALAMUS, several CRANIAL NERVES, and the OPTIC CHIASM. Chiasmal compression may result in bitemporal HEMIANOPSIA.
A pituitary tumor that secretes GROWTH HORMONE. In humans, excess HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE leads to ACROMEGALY.
A small tumor of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland whose cells stain with basic dyes. It may give rise to excessive secretion of ACTH, resulting in CUSHING SYNDROME. (Dorland, 27th ed)
