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

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 ...

Clinical and Molecular Characteristics of Primary Aldosteronism in Blacks

Primary Aldosteronism (PA) is the most common cause of secondary hypertension, accounting for 6-8% of hypertension and 14-25% of resistant hypertension. This prevalence translates to approximately 1 in 30-50 adults or about 4,000,000 Americans with PA. Until recently, the deleterious effects of PA were thought to derive solely from aldosterone-mediated ...

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

Circulating Tumor DNA Exposure in Peripheral Blood

This prospective, multi-center, feasibility study represents a feasibility study to determine the potential of circulating tumor DNA exposure in peripheral blood using a novel process in a sample of patients with different types of malignant organ tumors and a control cohort without malignant disease. The study applies a new process ...

Prospective Comprehensive Molecular Analysis of Endocrine Neoplasms

Background Endocrine neoplasms are among the fastest growing tumors in incidence in the United States. Between 1995 and 2005, the incidence of thyroid carcinoma has increased 98 percent. Tumors of the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal gland and gastrointestinal-pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors are among some of the most difficult tumors to clinically and ...

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

Genetic Analysis of Pheochromocytomas Paragangliomas and Associated Conditions

Pheochromocytoma and paragangliomas are tumors originated from neuroectoderm cells located in the adrenal or extra-adrenal paraganglia, often leading to increased secretion of hormones known as catecholamines. These tumors represent a potentially curable cause of hypertension and are malignant in about 10-15% of the cases. Approximately 40% of patients with pheochromocytomas ...

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 ...
