Study to Allow Access to Pasireotide for Patients Benefiting From Pasireotide Treatment in a Novartis-sponsored Study.

This is a multi-center, open label, phase IV study to provide continued supply of pasireotide to patients being treated in a current Novartis-sponsored, Oncology CD&MA study and who are benefiting from treatment with pasireotide. Eligible patients are to be consented and can then continue treatment with pasireotide in this protocol. ...

Defining the Genetic Basis for the Development of Primary Pigmented Nodular Adrenocortical Disease (PPNAD) and the Carney Complex

Primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD) is a pituitary-independent, primary adrenal form of hypercortisolism characterized by (a) resistance to suppression by dexamethasone and abolition of the normal diurnal rhythm of cortisol secretion, and (b) distinctive, bilateral, histopathologic changes of the adrenal glands, such as the formation of variably sized, pigmented ...

Phase N/A

An Investigation of Pituitary Tumors and Related Hypothalmic Disorders

There are a variety of tumors affecting the pituitary gland; The gene(s) involved in the pathogenesis of these tumors are largely not known; their possible association with other developmental defects or inheritance pattern(s) has not been investigated. The present study serves as a (i) screening/training, and, (ii) a research protocol. ...

Phase N/A

New Imaging Techniques in the Evaluation of Patients With Ectopic Cushing Syndrome

Between 10 percent and 20 percent of patients with hypercortisolism (Cushing syndrome) have ectopic production of adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) that causes cortisol excess. In approximately 50 percent of these patients, the source of ACTH cannot be found despite very detailed and extensive examination including imaging studies such as computed tomography ...

Phase

Study of Depression Peptides and Steroids in Cushing's Syndrome

PROTOCOL OUTLINE: All patients receive a psychiatric evaluation at baseline, as well as assessments of plasma adrenocorticotropin, beta lipotropin, beta endorphin, and cortisol, and urinary cortisol. Peptide and steroid assays are performed, alone and in response to corticotropin-releasing hormone, metyrapone, and dexamethasone. Patients are given sleep electroencephalograms at baseline and ...

Phase N/A

Adrenal Tumors - Pathogenesis and Therapy

The pathogenesis of adrenal tumors is still not fully elucidated and the treatment options for malignant tumors are poor. The current study investigates different aspects of the pathogenesis of adrenal tumors and evaluates different therapeutic options in patients with adrenocortical carcinoma.

Phase N/A

Insulin Sensitivity and Substrate Metabolism in Patients With Cushing's Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect og chronic elevated levels of cortisol on metabolism and insulin sensitivity.

Phase N/A

Preoperative Bexarotene Treatment for Cushing's Disease

Cushing's disease refers to a condition of glucocorticoid excess caused by an adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) producing pituitary tumor, which account for 10-15% of all pituitary tumors. The majority of corticotroph tumors are microadenomas at the time of diagnosis, and accurate surgical and histologic identification of these tumors can be challenging. ...

Phase

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

Effects of Metyrapone in Patients With Endogenous Cushing's Syndrome

This study will include Cushing disease patients with persistent or recurrent disease (after pituitary surgery) or who are newly diagnosed but are unsuitable for early surgery or wish to defer surgery. It will also include patients with ectopic ACTH syndrome (either occult, after surgery failure, or inoperable or metastatic) and ...
