Registry of Endocrine Tumors (Thyroid Parathyroid Adrenal Endocrine Pancreas Endocrine Digestive Tube)

The EUROCRINE project aims to decrease morbidity and mortality of rare endocrine tumours, by means of a pan-European database. Recording and accessing data at the European level, makes it possible to identify these tumours, which cannot be distinguished at local or national level, because of their extreme rarity. Dissemination of ...

Salivary Free Cortisol Response to Cosyntropin Stimulation Test in Mitotane Treated Patients

80-90% of circulating cortisol is bound to cortisol binding globulin (CBG) or transcortin, whereas only 3-10% is in the free state. Salivary free cortisol (SC) is an index of plasma free cortisol. In previous studies it was shown that in low-dose cosyntropin stimulation test, SC increases significantly in normal but ...

Towards an Easy-to-use Adrenal Cancer/Tumor Identity Card

Malignant pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma (MPP) and adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) are two rare cancer entities with a very unfavorable prognosis. The knowledge on these rare cancers improved thanks to the French COMETE ('COrtex, MEdulla Tumors Endocrines') network originally based on two clinical centers (HEGP and Cochin) well organized for clinical and biological samples ...

Phase N/A

International Pediatric Adrenocortical Tumor Registry

Adrenocortical tumors (ACT) are rare cancer types that form in the outer layer of the adrenal gland and are very uncommon in children and teenagers. There is variation in pediatric ACT incidence worldwide. In the United States, only about 25 new cases of ACT per million per year, making this ...

Phase N/A

Structured Evaluation of adRENal Tumors Discovered Incidentally - Prospectively Investigating the Testing Yield

Rationale: Standard diagnostic work-up for adrenal incidentalomas (AI) consists of periodical biochemical analysis and CT-scanning in case the initial work-up does not demonstrate the presence of hormonal hypersecretion or adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC),respectively. With respect to the diagnosis of ACC, the health benefits of this strategy are controversial for the following ...

Phase N/A

Anesthesia Management of Retroperitoneal Adrenalectomies

Due to their underlying disease, patients with adrenal tumors are prone to episodes of hyper- and hypotension. Furthermore, excessive hypercarbia and an increased arterial-alveolar CO2 difference can be seen during these operations.

Phase N/A

Prospective Randonmized Comparison of Needlescopic Versus Conventional Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy

Needlescopic instruments, defined as those with a diameter of no more than 3 mm. They result in smaller incisions than conventional 5- to 12-mm instruments, and thus better cosmesis. It may further reduce postoperative pain, hospital stay, and recovery time. All operations were performed with the lateral transperitoneal approach. A ...

Phase N/A

The Effects of Case Management in a Medicaid Managed Care Plan

This study will assign participants based on Zip Code to one of two conditions: control and experimental. In the control group, participants will receive telephonic assessments at baseline, three months, and six months. These assessments will be conducted by a member of the Medical Center’s Department of Geriatrics under the ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Patients With Endocrine-Related Conditions

This protocol is designed to allow inpatient and outpatient evaluation of adults with a variety of endocrine disorders for purposes of research and physician education in our accredited endocrinology training programs. The research-directed evaluations may include blood, saliva, or urine samples, or evaluation tissue that was routinely collected for clinical ...

Phase N/A

Study of Adrenal Gland Tumors

The adrenal glands are the major source in the body of the steroid hormones. In normal physiology, the pituitary hormone ACTH regulates the secretion of glucocorticoids, while the secretion of mineralocorticoids such as aldosterone is controlled by the renin-angiotensin system. In addition to these two classes of steroids, the adrenal ...
