  #  Abstract

Proliferative activity of 94 pituitary adenomas was assessed by the determination of the growth fraction, using MIB-1 monoclonal antibody in formalin fixed, paraffin embedded sections. This index was correlated with clinical and radiological evidence of invasiveness. The mean Ki-67 labeling index for all pituitary adenomas was 0.84% (range 0-17.45%). Hardy stage E tumours (1.44%) had a higher Ki-67 labeling index (LI) as compared with Hardy stage 0 tumours (0.36%). The difference in the Ki-67 labeling indices between invasive and non-invasive adenomas was not statistically significant. Hence, the Ki-67 labeling index is not a reliable indicator of invasiveness in pituitary adenomas.
