The relationship between serum prolactin and immunocytochemical staining for prolactin in patients with pituitary macroadenomas.

Abstract:

We have studied the relationship between mean pretreatment levels of serum prolactin and the presence of positive immunohistochemical staining for prolactin in the pituitary tumours of 55 patients. Pretreatment serum prolactin was significantly higher in patients with tumours showing many prolactin immunostaining cells than in those with none (P less than 0.001). When the pretreatment serum prolactin exceeded 6000 mU/l, the tumours contained over 90% of prolactin positive cells; one patient w...
