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

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 ...


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 ...


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. ...


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

Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study of Matching placebo, octreotide capsules

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 ...


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 ...


A Prospective Study of Outcome After Therapy for Acromegaly

Surgical removal of the pituitary tumor is the usual first form of treatment offered, but this is curative in only approximately 70% of patients. If not adequately treated, the disease can have significant morbidity largely due to the development of hypertension, diabetes and malignancy as well as possible loss of ...

Phase N/A

Assessment of Airway in Patients With Acromegaly for Predicting Successful Tracheal Intubation

All the patients of either gender, diagnosed as a case of acromegaly scheduled for pituitary surgery will be enrolled. This observational study will be conducted over a period of 3 years. A written informed consent will be taken from all the patients. The clinical diagnosis will be made on the ...
