Growth Hormone Feedback to Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (IGF-1) and Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT)

Growth hormone (GH) and Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) secretion are altered in acromegaly and type 2 Diabetes Mellitis (DM). The secretion of GH is mediated by central hypothalamic hormones (GH Releasing Hormone and somatostatin) as well as peripheral factors providing feedback inhibition (IGF-I and glucose, among others). The purpose of ...

Lanreotide Levels in Acromegaly

Recently lanreotide (a somatostatin analog) has come into the US marketplace as a commercially available medication approved by the FDA for the treatment of acromegaly. Blood levels in patients getting this drug are unknown and it may be critical to know the levels in patients whose symptoms are poorly controlled. ...

A Study Examining the Peri- and Post-operative Dynamics of the Growth Hormone (GH) - IGF-1 Axis in Subjects With Acromegaly During the First Year After Surgical Resection

Acromegaly is a rare disorder characterized by excessive production of growth hormone most often by a pituitary adenoma. A pituitary adenoma is a tumor, almost always benign or non-cancerous, that grows on the pituitary, a small gland located at the base of the brain. Treatment of acromegaly usually involves surgery, ...

Phase N/A

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. ...

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. ...

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 ...

Phase

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 ...

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

Efficacy and Safety of Octreotide Capsules (MYCAPSSA) in Acromegaly

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 ...
