A 40-yr-old female presented with an extensive lesion of the sellar area and the sphenoid sinus, spreading to the optic nerves and associated with pachymeningitis. Histological findings were consistent with an inflammatory pseudotumor, and steroid treatment allowed the disappearance of all the lesions. Inflammatory pseudotumors of the pituitary are very(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of the pellet core materials isomalt, sugar, and microcrystalline cellulose on the in vitro drug release kinetics of coated sustained-release pellets as well as to evaluate the influence of different ratios of polymethacrylate copolymers exhibiting different permeability characteristics on the(More)
The case of a 33-year-old-woman with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 1 (MEN1) syndrome and acromegaly due to ectopic growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) secretion by a thymic carcinoid tumour is reported. Immunohistochemistry revealed positive immunoreactivity for GHRH, vasoactive intestinal polypeptide, somatostatin and alpha-subunit in the tumour(More)
A 63-year-old female presented with the extremely rare occurrence of an aldosterone-secreting adrenocortical adenoma as part of the syndrome of multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1). Only two other MEN1 patients were reported in the literature with hyperaldosteronism. The patient's MEN1 syndrome consisted of the association of primary(More)
Azoles have a wide spectrum antimycotic activity, but due to some derivatives exhibiting poor water solubility their parenteral administration is limited. The influence of solubilizers on the aqueous solubility of the itraconazole, ketoconazole and miconazole was investigated in order to enhance their solubility for a possible parenteral dosage form. The(More)
Pregnancy Associated Breast Cancer (PABC) manifests during pregnancy or within a year following delivery. We sought to investigate differences in management, outcome, clinical, histopathology and immunohistochemistry (IHC) characteristics of PABC and matched controls in a retrospective case control study. PABC and control patients were selected from breast(More)
A 42-yr-old man with congestive heart failure and diabetes mellitus was found to have acromegaly and a pheochromocytoma. Serum GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) levels were elevated (2.34 ng/dl; normal, less than 0.02 ng/dl), suggesting that the acromegaly was caused by ectopic secretion of GHRH. Postmortem examination revealed that the right adrenal gland(More)
The effect of oral administration of coumarin on the induction of breast tumors brought about by DMBA has been studied in female Wistar rats. Coumarin given before DMBA caused a significant dose-related suppression of the incidence of adenocarcinomas, although no histologic difference was found in the tumor between untreated and coumarin-treated rats. The(More)
A SINGLE injection of testosterone given to female rats in their early post-natal life results in permanent morphological and functional changes of the gonado-trophin-ovarian axis. The ovaries remain small and though they contain follicles of various sizes, these do not rupture or produce any corpora lutea. Because of the lack of ovulation, these(More)
