GAL3 protein expression is related to clinical features of prolactin-secreting pituitary microadenoma and predicts its recurrence after surgical treatment.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous in vitro study showed that Galectin-3 (Gal-3) protein plays an important role in pituitary tumorigenesis, however, the association of Gal-3 expression with the clinical feature and prognosis of pituitary tumor in a clinical setting remains unknown. METHODS We enrolled 220 patients with prolactin-secreting pituitary adenomas (PA) who… (More)
