The effect of thyroid hormone and a long-acting somatostatin analogue on TtT-97 murine thyrotropic tumors.

Abstract

Thyroid hormone inhibits thyrotropin (TSH) production and thyrotrope growth. Somatostatin has been implicated as a synergistic factor in the inhibition of thyrotrope function. We have previously shown that pharmacological doses of thyroid hormone (levothyroxine [LT4]) inhibit growth of murine TtT-97 thyrotropic tumors in association with upregulation of… (More)
