Morphologic changes and molecular regulation of angiogenesis in pituitary adenomas.

Abstract:

Angiogenesis, the process of development of a new vasculature, plays a crucial role in tumour growth. In the pituitary, unlike other tissues, vascularization is lower in adenomas compared to the normal gland. Despite this finding, a relationship between increased vascularity and some aspects of tumour behaviour such as size, invasiveness, surgical outcome and malignancy, has been demonstrated. The process of angiogenesis is the result of a balance of stimulating and inhibiting factors. It is ...
