Description

The pituitary gland is an important one since it controls several of the other hormone glands, such as the thyroid and adrenals. A pituitary adenoma is an abnormal growth or tumor in this gland, and they are the subject of very active clinical and pathological research.

This book examines the latest developments in this field and discusses the most important molecules implicated in apoptosis, angiogenesis and signal transduction. A good understanding of these processes is needed to identify the best therapies.

Key Features

  • Facilitates the understanding of the processes involved and how they are translated into therapy
  • Illustrations are used to explain the complex mechanisms involved

Readership

Pathologists, clinical endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, basic scientists
