Why not PGI2 by way of ASA? Especially given other answer choices of proteins C + S: doesn't warfarin also suppress these?

imnotarobotbut  Protein C and S are ANTI-thrombotic, so although Warfarin does decrease them, they wouldn't decrease the patient's risk for thrombosis +  
epr94  the question ask "suppression" of which one will decrease risk of thrombosis if you suppress C and S which and anti-thrombotic you get thrombotic +

Elevations in body temperature occur when concentrations of prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) increase within certain areas of the brain.These elevations alter the firing rate of neurons that control thermoregulation in the hypothalamus.. It is now clear that most antipyretics work by inhibiting the enzyme cyclooxygenase and reducing the levels of PGE(2) within the hypothalamus.

Can anyone explain why this is not a pituitary adenoma? Is it just a lack of other symptoms?

benzjonez  I think that they just wanted you to notice the **calcifications**. Per FA, "calcifications are common in craniopharyngiomas," whereas I don't think you'd expect to see calcifications in a prolactinoma. +3  
epr94  also the option is prolactinoma not broad pituitary calcifications and he doesnt show any specific signs of high prolactin +
