Developing a Simple Recognition System of Acromegaly

Background: Acromegaly is a slowly progressive disease caused by growth hormone (GH) excess. The estimated prevalence of the disease is 40 cases/1000000 population with 3-4 new cases/1000000 population per year. Most patients have classic manifestations due to acral and soft tissue change, including thickening of the calvarium, increased size of ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Oral Octreotide Capsules to Injectable Somatostatin Analogs in Acromegaly

This will be a phase 3, randomized, open-label, active controlled, multicenter study to evaluate maintenance of response, safety and patient reported outcomes (PROs) in acromegaly patients treated with octreotide capsules and in patients treated with SOC parenteral SRLs, who previously tolerated and demonstrated biochemical control on both treatments. The core ...

Hormonal Outcomes in Acromegalic Patients With Treated Surgery With or Without Long Acting Somatostatin Analogues

Patients who are diagnosed with acromegaly with a GH-secreting pituitary adenoma receiving TSA at the Asan Medical Center (Seoul, Korea) from Aug 2013 to Aug 2015 will be recruited. The eligible patient population will consist of 30 adult, male and female patient with Age 18 or older. Number of patients ...

Assessment of Changes in Metabolic Activity in Liver & Skeletal Muscle in Patients Suffering From Acromegaly

Background: Growth hormone (GH) plays a pivotal role in the regulation of body composition including ectopic lipid deposition in insulin sensitive organs like liver and skeletal muscle. Direct inhibition of growth hormone action by a receptor antagonist has been shown to induce hepatic steatosis and growth hormone replacement decreases liver ...

Phase

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

Buccodental Manifestations in Patients With Acromegaly

Context/ study relevance: Acromegaly is a rare condition (3 to 4 new cases per million per year) due to Growth Hormone (GH) overproduction by a somatotrope pituitary adenoma, resulting in Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) excess. Consequently, a dysmorphic syndrome prevailing at the level of face and extremities progressively develops ...

Phase N/A

Cardiac (CMRI) Assessment of Acromegaly

Patients with acromegaly have left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and dysfunction on echocardiography, but only very few studies have been performed using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI), currently the reference modality is assessment in cardiac geometry function. In addition, no data are available on right ventricular (RV) and atrial structure and ...

Phase N/A

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

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 ...

Phase

IGF-I and Free Fatty Acids Isn Glucose Metabolism in Acromegaly

Background Glucose metabolism abnormalities are frequent in acromegaly. Insulin resistance (IR) correlates with the intensity of acromegaly and Insulin-like Growth factor-I (IGF-I) correlates better with IR than growth hormone (GH). Insulin secretion (IS) is significantly reduced in hyperglycemic acromegalics as compared with those with normal glucose levels. IS is independent ...
