Long-term Beneficial Metabolic Effects of Adrenalectomy in Subclinical Cushing's Syndrome of Adrenal Incidentaloma

Objective To determine the metabolic effects of the adrenalectomy in subclinical Cushing's syndrome of adrenal incidentaloma. Methods 234 subclinical cushing syndrome and adrenal incidentaloma will be randomly assigned into two groups(e.g adrenalectomy group and conservative treatment group).

Phase N/A

Adrenal Venous Sampling in Patients With Overt or Subclinical Cushings Syndrome and Bilateral Adrenal Tumors

Adrenal incidentalomas are quite common. About 4 % of the population have adrenal tumors that they are unknown of. Some percentage of this patients produce a little to much cortisol, but not enough to give overt Cushings syndrome. It is shown that slightly elevated cortisol production will give higher blood ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Metyrapone in Patients With Endogenous Cushing's Syndrome

This study will include Cushing disease patients with persistent or recurrent disease (after pituitary surgery) or who are newly diagnosed but are unsuitable for early surgery or wish to defer surgery. It will also include patients with ectopic ACTH syndrome (either occult, after surgery failure, or inoperable or metastatic) and ...

Targeting Iatrogenic Cushing's Syndrome With 11 -hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 1 Inhibition

Currently, 2-3% of the population of the United Kingdom and United States of America receive glucocorticoid therapy. Significant adverse effects are not confined to chronic use; recurrent short-course administration is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The adverse metabolic features associated with glucocorticoid use include obesity, skeletal muscle myopathy, hypertension, ...

Phase

SOM230 Ectopic ACTH-producing Tumors

The purpose of this prospective open-label phase II study, is to evaluate the efficacy of pasireotide twice daily subcutaneous injections for normalizing 24 hour urine free cortisol in patients with ectopic ACTH-producing tumors as measured by the proportion of patients achieving normal UFC at the end of the study period.

Phase

Hypercortisolism and Epicardial Adipose Tissue

Identifying hypercortisolism patients at risk for cardio-vascular events despite biological cure, and determine which patients should be particularly followed. Hypercortisolic patients represent an ideal in vivo model to determine the interactions between glucocorticoids and ectopic fat development.

Phase N/A

Cardiac Steatosis in Cushing's Syndrome

Despite skeletal muscle atrophy, Cushing's syndrome patients have an increased Left Ventricular mass, reversible upon correction of the hypercortisolism. This may be due to cardiac steatosis, previously demonstrated in patients with diabetes mellitus. This study aims at evaluating the myocardial triglyceride content and cardiac structure and function, using 1H magnetic ...

Phase N/A

Preoperative Bexarotene Treatment for Cushing's Disease

Cushing's disease refers to a condition of glucocorticoid excess caused by an adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) producing pituitary tumor, which account for 10-15% of all pituitary tumors. The majority of corticotroph tumors are microadenomas at the time of diagnosis, and accurate surgical and histologic identification of these tumors can be challenging. ...

Phase

Efficacy and Safety Evaluation of Osilodrostat in Cushing's Disease

Purpose of study is to aim to confirm efficacy and safety of osilodrostat for the treatment of patients with Cushing's disease who are candidates for medical therapy

Phase

New Imaging Techniques in the Evaluation of Patients With Ectopic Cushing Syndrome

Between 10 percent and 20 percent of patients with hypercortisolism (Cushing syndrome) have ectopic production of adrenocorticotropin hormone (ACTH) that causes cortisol excess. In approximately 50 percent of these patients, the source of ACTH cannot be found despite very detailed and extensive examination including imaging studies such as computed tomography ...
