Evaluation of Patients With Endocrine-Related Conditions

This protocol is designed to allow inpatient and outpatient evaluation of adults with a variety of endocrine disorders for purposes of research and physician education in our accredited endocrinology training programs. The research-directed evaluations may include blood, saliva, or urine samples, or evaluation tissue that was routinely collected for clinical ...

Phase N/A

Study of Adrenal Gland Tumors

The adrenal glands are the major source in the body of the steroid hormones. In normal physiology, the pituitary hormone ACTH regulates the secretion of glucocorticoids, while the secretion of mineralocorticoids such as aldosterone is controlled by the renin-angiotensin system. In addition to these two classes of steroids, the adrenal ...

Phase N/A

Anesthesia Management of Retroperitoneal Adrenalectomies

Due to their underlying disease, patients with adrenal tumors are prone to episodes of hyper- and hypotension. Furthermore, excessive hypercarbia and an increased arterial-alveolar CO2 difference can be seen during these operations.

Phase N/A

The Effects of Case Management in a Medicaid Managed Care Plan

This study will assign participants based on Zip Code to one of two conditions: control and experimental. In the control group, participants will receive telephonic assessments at baseline, three months, and six months. These assessments will be conducted by a member of the Medical Center’s Department of Geriatrics under the ...

Phase N/A

German Adrenocortical Carcinoma Registry

Basic objective of the German Adrenocortical Carcinoma Registry is to improve the care of patients with adrenocortical cancer. The registration of as many patients as possible helps to collect data for the prognosis and prospects of success regarding different treatment plans. This data will be taken into consideration for planning ...

Phase N/A

International Pediatric Adrenocortical Tumor Registry

Adrenocortical tumors (ACT) are rare cancer types that form in the outer layer of the adrenal gland and are very uncommon in children and teenagers. There is variation in pediatric ACT incidence worldwide. In the United States, only about 25 new cases of ACT per million per year, making this ...

Phase N/A

Prospective Randonmized Comparison of Needlescopic Versus Conventional Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy

Needlescopic instruments, defined as those with a diameter of no more than 3 mm. They result in smaller incisions than conventional 5- to 12-mm instruments, and thus better cosmesis. It may further reduce postoperative pain, hospital stay, and recovery time. All operations were performed with the lateral transperitoneal approach. A ...

Phase N/A

A clinical research study for the treatment of Parathyroid Adenoma, Thyroid Adenoma, Endocrine Tumors, Malignant neoplasm of adrenal gland, Neuroblastoma

Background Endocrine neoplasms are among the fastest growing tumors in incidence in the United States. Between 1995 and 2005, the incidence of thyroid carcinoma has increased 98 percent. Tumors of the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal gland and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors are among some of the most difficult tumors to clinically and ...

Phase N/A

Clinical and Molecular Characteristics of Primary Aldosteronism in Blacks

Primary Aldosteronism (PA) is the most common cause of secondary hypertension, accounting for 6-8% of hypertension and 14-25% of resistant hypertension. This prevalence translates to approximately 1 in 30-50 adults or about 4,000,000 Americans with PA. Until recently, the deleterious effects of PA were thought to derive solely from aldosterone-mediated ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Analysis of Pheochromocytomas Paragangliomas and Associated Conditions

Pheochromocytoma and paragangliomas are tumors originated from neuroectoderm cells located in the adrenal or extra-adrenal paraganglia, often leading to increased secretion of hormones known as catecholamines. These tumors represent a potentially curable cause of hypertension and are malignant in about 10-15% of the cases. Approximately 40% of patients with pheochromocytomas ...
