When the surgeon identifies an adenoma within the gland and selectively excises it, endocrine-active pituitary tumors are usually cured and pituitary function is preserved.

OBJECT Thrombolytic treatments for ischemic stroke can restore circulation, but reperfusion injury, mediated by oxygen free radicals, can limit their utility. The authors hypothesized that, during reperfusion, nitric oxide (NO) provides cytoprotection against oxygen free radical species. METHODS Levels of NO and oxygen free radicals were determined in(More)

Ether phospholipids have demonstrated both in vitro and in vivo activity against a wide variety of tumor cell lines. The known cyclic ether phospholipid, SRI 62-834, was used as the model to prepare eight novel phospholipids containing a cyclic ether. All of the compounds were as effective as ET-18-OCH3 in their ability to activate macrophage-induced(More)
