Global population numbers are predicted to peak in several decades and then shrink by 50% in some countries; researchers want to know why.
Patients with stage II or IV disease did not fare as well as patients with stage I or III disease.
Investigators sought to measure the association between mortality and levels of autonomous cortisol secretion in patients with adrenal incidentalomas.
A team of researchers conducted genetic analyses of children and adolescents with primary adrenal insufficiency of unknown etiology to provide insight into diagnosing this and other related conditions.
A team of investigators conducted a phase 3, multicenter study with a double-blind, randomized withdrawal period to assess the effects of twice-daily osilodrostat in patients with Cushing disease.
