To support, pursue, encourage, promote and where possible, fund research on Pituitary Disorders in a sustained and full time effort to find a cure for these illnesses. The PNA will disseminate information helpful to the Medical Community, the public and to pituitary patients and their families on matters regarding early detection, symptoms, treatments and resources available to patients with pituitary disease. Note: The PNA does not receive Federal or State Funding for any of its work, projects or studies.
The PNA believes there is strength in numbers. Since it is known that nearly a quarter of the world's adult population develops pituitary tumors in their lifetimes (22.4% actually), the need for joint cooperation and education is vital even though only a small fraction of patients are diagnosed with "clinically significant" tumors.
