I have been told that octreotide has ocassionally killed pituitary tumors. What affect would it have on tumor cells and other cells, including the pituitary gand? The main question concerns the direct application of octreotide to the tumor and the spot where it comes from the tumor to prevent new growth.
I'm not sure if this is relevant but ... my symptoms change from month to month depending on witch side I get sandostatin injected. I'm sure it gets better when injected on right side but flushes and symptoms get bad again on the left... I have wondered myself is it injected closer to the tumors in my spine on the right side ... I just wanted to put that out there ...
