The only suggestion would be to use a penetrant, like PB Blaster. Use it liberally and let it soak overnight, you can also try some light tapping or heat. The leaking fluid has probably corroded the threads. But don't leave it because not only does it leak fluid, it also leaks air into the system when you release the Brake Pedal, making stopping less efficient and contaminating your fluid.

I usually wrap the threads of my Brake fittings and Bleeder Valves with a Teflon Sealant Tape (on the threads only - don't block the Valve), this makes the seal better and prevents seizing like you're experiencing. Hope this helps. Good Luck!...

Happy Motoring... Jim'99
