OBJECTIVES Apoptosis of endocrine cells represents one of factors significantly affected the control of hormones secretion. Present study aimed to examine whether treatment of somatotropinoma types tumours with somatostatine analogue (lanreotide) results in apoptosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS The studies were performed on 35 patients with somatotropinoma type tumours on whom adenomectomy was performed by transsphenoidal approach. The operative material was examined by cellular morphology, based… CONTINUE READING
