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 ...

Phase N/A

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

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

Familial Investigations of Childhood Cancer Predisposition

During the study, blood samples or other healthy tissue will be obtained from participants, as well as medical and family histories. When possible, leftover tumor samples will also be collected. If participants agree to be re-contacted in the future, they will be asked about once each year to update their ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Cryoablation of Bone Metastases From Endocrine Tumors

Thyroid neoplasms, as well as adrenal and neuroendocrine tumors have the potential to metastasize to bone. About 3% of patients with well-differentiated thyroid carcinomas develop secondary bone lesions, while adrenal and neuroendocrine tumors have 10% and 13% bone metastases rates, respectively. Spinal metastases are associated to a worst prognosis. The ...

Phase N/A

Adrenal Tumors - Pathogenesis and Therapy

The pathogenesis of adrenal tumors is still not fully elucidated and the treatment options for malignant tumors are poor. The current study investigates different aspects of the pathogenesis of adrenal tumors and evaluates different therapeutic options in patients with adrenocortical carcinoma.

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 ...
