Sleep Apnea in Acromegaly After Surgery

Sleep apnea is common in acromegaly and both diseases are independently associated with hypertension and insulin resistance contributing to increased morbidity and mortality. Respiratory polygraphy is a simpler alternative to in-laboratory polysomnography for the management of more symptomatic patients with obstructive sleep apnea. The aim of this study is to …

Phase N/A

Modulating the GIP System in Patients With Acromegaly Due to a Pituitary Tumor

Aim: To determine the importance of the GIP system in patients with acromegaly who has paradoxical growth hormone secretion during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) using a GIP antagonist (GIP-A). Thirty participants (age 18-75 years) with normal kidney and liver parameters and hemoglobin levels will be included in a …

Phase N/A

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

Acromegaly - Before and After Treatment

Acromegaly is a rare disease caused by a growth hormone (GH) producing pituitary adenoma. Surgery is primary treatment, whereas medical treatment with a somatostatin analogue (SA), which suppresses GH secretion and reduces tumour size, is used when surgery is insufficient or unfeasible. Acromegaly is associated with metabolic abnormalities which contributes …

Phase N/A

Muscle in Acromegaly and Cushing's Syndrome

Prior chronic exposure to glucocorticoids or growth hormone (GH) determines fat infiltration and persistent impairment of muscle structure in "cured" patients with CS or acromegaly, respectively. All this leads to irreversible changes in muscle strength and performance, markedly affecting morbidity and quality of life of these patients. In particular, muscle …

Phase N/A

Treatment Patterns and Treatment Outcomes for Acromegaly

The first phase of this study will be to contact all subjects in the cohort by a mailing introducing them to the study. This will be followed by a phone call and administration of a questionnaire by phone or by mail. The questionnaire will collect current information on acromegaly treatment, …

Phase N/A

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

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

Rehabilitation Program in Patients With Acromegaly

Acromegaly is a rare, chronic, disabling disease of endocrine origin that causes several debilitating systemic dysfunctions due to the excessive production of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) (Gadelha et al., 2017). In 98% of cases, the disease is caused by a sporadic somatotropinoma. Sporadic somatotropinomas are …

Phase N/A

Dynamic Hormone Diagnostics in Endocrine Disease

Microdialysis fluid will be collected from all participants using the ULTRADIAN dynamic diagnostics system. This is a 3-component collection system which can easily be attached to a belt and allows participants to continue with their normal everyday activities whilst undergoing sampling. The micro-fractions are minute, the volume would normally be …
