Targeting Iatrogenic Cushing's Syndrome With 11 -hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 1 Inhibition

Currently, 2-3% of the population of the United Kingdom and United States of America receive glucocorticoid therapy. Significant adverse effects are not confined to chronic use; recurrent short-course administration is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The adverse metabolic features associated with glucocorticoid use include obesity, skeletal muscle myopathy, hypertension, ...

Retrospective Chart Review Study of Pediatric Patients Treated With Korlym for Cushing Syndrome

This retrospective chart review study seeks to collect data from pediatric patients treated with Korlym (mifepristone) to help provide clinicians with some insight on the potential role of mifepristone in the treatment of pediatric patients with Cushing syndrome. Only sites that have been identified to have patients appropriate for this ...

Phase N/A

The Accuracy of Late Night Urinary Free Cortisol/Creatinine and Hair Cortisol in Cushing's Syndrome Diagnosis

24h-Urine free cortisol (24h-UFC) and other screening tests may turn out normal in Cushing's syndrome (CS) patients, probably due to high variability and cyclicity in cortisol secretion. To rule out cyclic cortisol secretion, the recommendation is to repeat 24h-UFC measurements on different and several occasions. As 24h-UFC is technically inconvenient, ...

Phase N/A

SOM230 Ectopic ACTH-producing Tumors

The purpose of this prospective open-label phase II study, is to evaluate the efficacy of pasireotide twice daily subcutaneous injections for normalizing 24 hour urine free cortisol in patients with ectopic ACTH-producing tumors as measured by the proportion of patients achieving normal UFC at the end of the study period.

Phase

Hypercortisolism and Epicardial Adipose Tissue

Identifying hypercortisolism patients at risk for cardio-vascular events despite biological cure, and determine which patients should be particularly followed. Hypercortisolic patients represent an ideal in vivo model to determine the interactions between glucocorticoids and ectopic fat development.

Phase N/A

Cardiac Steatosis in Cushing's Syndrome

Despite skeletal muscle atrophy, Cushing's syndrome patients have an increased Left Ventricular mass, reversible upon correction of the hypercortisolism. This may be due to cardiac steatosis, previously demonstrated in patients with diabetes mellitus. This study aims at evaluating the myocardial triglyceride content and cardiac structure and function, using 1H magnetic ...

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 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

Efficacy and Safety Evaluation of Osilodrostat in Cushing's Disease

Purpose of study is to aim to confirm efficacy and safety of osilodrostat for the treatment of patients with Cushing's disease who are candidates for medical therapy
