CONTEXT Pituitary adenomas can cause specific syndromes due to hormone excess and/or determine sellar mass symptoms. Pituitary cell growth can sometimes be influenced by medical therapy, such as for somatotroph adenomas treated with somatostatin analogs or prolactinomas treated with dopaminergic drugs. However, nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFAs) are still orphans of medical therapy. Everolimus (RAD001), a derivative of rapamycin, is a well-known immunosuppressant drug, which has been… CONTINUE READING
