Investigators report outcomes from the LINC-4 study that evaluated outcomes following osilodrostat treatment for Cushing disease.
A study was conducted to examine the relationship between oral mircobiota, blood pressure, and incident hypertension in postmenopausal women.
A team of investigators measured concentrations of 5 corticosteroid hormones in the keratin matrix of patients with adrenal incidentalomas with or without cortisol autonomy.
A team of investigators assessed the ability of computed tomographic-derived, 3-dimensional volumetry to predict autonomous cortisol secretion among patients with adrenal adenomas.
Malignant neuroendocrine pulmonary tumors associated with Cushing syndrome are often treated with surgical removal. Researchers sought ways to predict outcomes and potentially lung-sparing surgical methods.
Mild autonomous cortisol secretion (MACS) from benign adrenal tumors is associated with increased cardiometabolic risk.
The complexity of Cushing syndrome often makes diagnosis difficult. Researchers sought to create a diagnostic tool that could determine which patients may be at risk for developing the disease.
Adrenal masses and people who may have Cushing syndrome are often evaluated with a dexamethasone suppression test (DST), but false positives occur. Researchers examined whether free cortisol assessment during DST would aid in diagnosis.
Children with well-controlled congenital adrenal hyperplasia may not need additional growth treatment; bone age may not be an accurate predictor.
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.
