This prospective controlled interventional study aims to reveal the diversity of vitamin D metabolism in patients with certain endocrine disorders (Cushing's disease, acromegaly, primary hyperparathyroidism, diabetes mellitus type 1) compared to healthy adults. All patients will receive a single dose (150,000 IU) of cholecalciferol aqueous solution orally. Laboratory assessments including serum vitamin D metabolites (25(OH)D3, 25(OH)D2, 1,25(OH)2D3, 3-epi-25(OH)D3, 24,25(OH)2D3 and D3), free 25(OH)D, vitamin D-binding protein (DBP) and parathyroid hormone (PTH) as well as serum and urine biochemical parameters will be performed before the intake and on Days 1, 3 and 7 after the administration.
A randomized, placebo-controlled study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of paltusotine (formerly CRN00808; an oral selective nonpeptide somatostatin receptor type 2 biased agonist) in subjects with acromegaly previously treated with somatostatin receptor ligand (SRL) based treatment regimens.
Headache is a very common main complaint of patients with GH pituitary tumor, which has seriously affected the normal work and life of patients. Although the current surgery and drugs have a certain effect on patients with headache, the overall effect is not satisfied. However, the use of COX-2 inhibitors, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and other analgesics are only effective for some patients with headaches, and long-term use has adverse reactions. Therefore, it is necessary to seek new treatments for postoperative headaches in patients with GH pituitary tumors. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) modulates the excitability of the underlying cerebral cortex by applying a rapidly changing magnetic field on the surface of the scalp. It is a relatively simple and safe method. It is currently approved for treating depression, migraine, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and Alzheimer's disease. Several small clinical studies have proven that rTMS can be used to prevent and treat Headache. Therefore, this study aims to observe the efficacy and safety of TMS in the treatment of postoperative headache in patients with GH pituitary tumors.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of IONIS-GHR-LRx subcutaneous (SC) injection as monotherapy in patients with acromegaly.
Acromegaly is a disease characterized by excess growth hormone(GH) and insulin like growth factor(IGF)-1. Pituitary GH secreting adenoma is the major cause of acromegaly. Acromegalic cardiomyopathy is one of the leading causes of death in acromegalic patients. No efficient medicine is available for acromegalic cardiomyopathy until now and there were limited studies. Empagliflozin is proved to decrease the risk of heart failure in diabetic patients and independent of blood glucose control. We planed to evaluate the structure of heart by MRI before and after 6 months treatment with empagliflozin in acromegalic patients to investigate the effect of empagliflozin on acromegalic cardiomyopathy.
Randomized, multicenter, international clinical trial (one center in Barcelona and one center in Bergamo, Italy), with exploratory intention. The main objective of the study will be to assess changes in quality of life, mood, chronic pain and sleep after the delivery of a Mindfulness program. The secondary objectives will be: to evaluate if this program also affects blood pressure, if the changes are maintained six months after treatment and if it determines the decrease in health resources used. The intervention group will do Mindfulness sessions according to an established protocol of 8 weeks, while the control group will follow the normal clinical routine. The Mindfulness protocol will be carried out in group sessions led by a therapist with experience in mindfulness and compassion, lasting 120 minutes, weekly, which will take place over 8 weeks. Two separate studies will be done, one for patients with acromegaly which will be the first to take place and then another for patients with Cushing's syndrome.
ACRODAT® is a new software medical device developed by a group of acromegaly experts to help practising endocrinologists assess disease activity in patients with acromegaly. It uses 5 key parameters (IGF-I level, tumour status, comorbidities, symptoms and Quality of life) to evaluate the patient's health status. The purpose of this post marketing surveillance study is to prospectively evaluate whether patients monitored by ACRODAT® with appropriate clinical decisions based on disease activity status will benefit from improved treatment outcomes both in the short and in the long term.
A phase 2, open label, long-term extension study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of paltusotine (formerly CRN00808; an oral selective nonpeptide somatostatin receptor type 2 biased agonist) in subjects with acromegaly.
A prospective, controlled, single blinded study was planned. 20 patients with Acromegaly (Acromegaly Group) and 20 healthy subjects (Control Group) were planned to include in the study. Connecticut Chemosensory Clinical Research Center (CCCRC) test was applied to evaluate olfactory functions. Olfactory bulb(OB) volumes were measured with a 1.5 T General Electric Signa Excite MRI scanner.
The purpose of this trial is to assess the long-term safety of CAM2029 in patients with acromegaly. Patients will be administered CAM2029 subcutaneously once monthly during 12 months. Patients fulfilling trial NCT04076462 will be offered to continue with open-label treatment week 24-52 in this trial.
