Study of Management of Pasireotide-induced Hyperglycemia in Adult Patients With Cushing's Disease or Acromegaly

This is a Phase IV, multi-center, randomized, open-label study. Eligible patients will start pasireotide subcutaneously (s.c.) for Cushing's disease and pasireotide LAR (long-acting release) for acromegaly. Patients currently treated at screening visit with pasireotide s.c. or LAR are eligible as long as they meet protocol criteria during the screening period. ...

Phase

Estrogen Treatment in Acromegalic Women

This will be a canadian multicenter study with a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled design, to assess the efficacy and safety of adjuvant alesse in female acromegalic patients with suboptimal response to sandostatin LAR treatment.

Phase

Genetics of Endocrine Tumours - Familial Isolated Pituitary Adenoma - FIPA

We wish to find genes which predispose to pituitary tumours, to find out how those genes work and to assess those genes (and similar genes) in other conditions related to the pituitary tumours. We will study the recently identified new familial pituitary adenoma gene AIP (AhR interacting protein) and its ...

Phase N/A

Ultrasound Guided Sandostatin LAR Injection in Acromegaly

IM intragluteal injections have been reported to be inaccurate in their placement in the intramuscular compartment when performed as dictated by the current standard of care. This inaccuracy of placement may have an effect on the efficacy of drugs delivered by the IM route. Furthermore, the inaccuracy of IM injections ...

Phase N/A

Changes of Left Ventricular Mass and Cardiac Function in Patients With Active Acromegaly During Treatment With the Growth Hormone Receptor Antagonist Pegvisomant

The purpose of this study is to evaluate changes in left ventricular mass and cardiac function in patients with active acromegaly before and after treatment with the growth hormone receptor antagonist pegvisomant for one year.

Phase

Substrate Metabolism and Insulin Sensitivity in Acromegalic Patients Before and After Treatment

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of chronic elevated growth hormone on metabolism and insulin sensitivity by studying acromegalic patients before and after treatment.

Phase N/A

Bone MicroArchitecture in Acromegaly

Growth hormone (GH) and Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) are important regulators of bone modeling and remodeling, fundamental to maintenance of normal skeletal integrity. In acromegaly, a disease characterized by longstanding exposure to excess GH and IGF-1, these hormones induce marked skeletal changes. Most dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) studies report ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of Octreotide Capsules (MYCAPSSA) in Acromegaly

This is a double blind, randomized study that assesses the efficacy and safety of octreotide capsules vs. placebo. Eligible acromegaly patients, treated with injectable somatostatin analogs, who are biochemically controlled and have prior evidence of active disease, will be randomized to receive either octreotide capsules or placebo for up to ...

Phase

Strict IGF-1 Control in Acromegaly

Acromegaly is a rare, chronic, and debilitating disease, usually caused by a benign tumor on the pituitary gland, which leads to excessive production of growth hormone (GH). GH excess in turn causes overproduction of another hormone called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 levels are currently the most widely accepted measure ...
