Strict IGF-1 Control in Acromegaly

Acromegaly is a rare, chronic, and debilitating disease, usually caused by a benign tumor on the pituitary gland, which leads to excessive production of growth hormone (GH). GH excess in turn causes overproduction of another hormone called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 levels are currently the most widely accepted measure ...

Phase

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

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

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

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 study and who are benefiting from treatment with pasireotide alone or in combination with another treatment for Cushing's Disease and Acromegaly . Eligible patients are to be ...

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

Safety Tolerability and Efficacy of IONIS-GHR-LRx in up to 42 Adult Patients With Acromegaly Being Treated With Long-acting Somatostatin Receptor Ligands

This short-term study will assess changes in serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) over a 16-week treatment period in a patient population diagnosed with Acromegaly being treated with Long-acting Somatostatin Receptor Ligands (SRL)

Phase

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

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

The Longitudinal Approach to Acromegaly: A Pattern of Treatment and Comparative Effectiveness Research

The study was designed to answer some of the most important questions about the treatment modalities of acromegaly, the relevance of these treatment modalities to patients' clinical outcomes and the economic impact of treatment programs on patients. These answers may be of great help to the treatment of these populations ...

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 ...
