Enzalutamide and External Beam Hypofractionated Radiotherapy For Intermediate Risk Localized Prostate Cancer

This research study is evaluating a drug called enzalutamide in combination with external beam radiation therapy as a possible treatment for prostate cancer. Presently, when participants receive hormonal therapy with radiation therapy for prostate cancer, medications are given to reduce testosterone levels in the blood stream. This leads to side effects such as loss of sex ...

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Human Hypothalamic Responses to Oral Temperature and Glucose Sensing

The study will consist of four occasions with one week between the occasions. fMRI will be performed to monitor hypothalamic activity before and after an ingestion of 1 of the following 4 stimuli (300 ml of each): water at room temperature, water at 0 degrees Celsius, glucose solution at room temperature, glucose solution at 0 degrees Celsius. The last two stimuli both cont...

Assess the Potential for Adrenal Suppression and Systemic Drug Absorption Following Multiple Dosing With DFD-06

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential of DFD-06 to suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis when applied twice daily for 15 days.

Periodontal Profile of Hypogonadic Men

The aim of this study is to assess if hypogonadic men with periodontitis benefit from testosterone replacement therapy before being submitted to periodontal treatment. Fifty hypogonadic men (Total Testosterone

Estrogen Replacement in Anorexia Nervosa

The present study is a placebo-controlled randomised study on the effects of estrogen replacement upon AN-associated psychopathology, several neurocognitive domains and appetite-regulating circuits in female patients with AN. We aim at assessing peripheral concentrations of neuroendocrinological components of the Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Gonadal (HPG) and Hypothalamus-Pituit...

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) in Pituitary Adenoma

Several studies have been reported that heart rate is known to be associated with prognosis in chronic diseases and acute diseases. For example, a decrease in heart rate following myocardial infarction may lead to a higher mortality rate. It is also known to predict heart failure, diabetic neuropathy, and even depression. The combined pituitary function test artificially i...

Adult Height Prediction in Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) is a genetic rare disease, which alters the adrenal production of gluco and mineralo corticoïds. The treatment consists in supplementing children with hydrocortisone. Despite care for these children has improved substantially across decades, short adult height (AH) still remains an important consequence of the disease. About 20% of pati...

Growth Hormone (GH) in Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is a genetic rare disease, which alters the adrenal production of gluco and mineralo corticoids. The treatment consists in supplementing children using hydrocortisone. Despite care for these children has improve substantially across decades, short adult height still remains an important consequence of the disease. About 20 % of patients ...

Venopuncture-Free IVF for Monitoring IVF Patient Cycles

Salivary diagnostic testing is emerging as a less invasive, inexpensive alternative to serum analyte measurements with proven diagnostic accuracy in clinical settings. This study aims to continue analyzing aspects of the performance of salivary hormone competitive immunoassays for monitoring patient's reproductive hormone profiles in the reproductive cycle. Hormone levels w...

Anti-Müllerian Hormone is Not Predictive of Pregnancy in Donor Insemination Cycles in Non-infertile Women

To evaluate if ovarian reserve (measured by means of anti-mullerian hormone -AMH- and antral follicle count -AFC-) can predict pregnancy in donor insemination cycles (dIUI) performed in non-infertile women.

Prevalence of Pregnancy in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome is the most common endocrine disorder in women of reproductive age, with a prevalence of approximately 5-10%. Polycystic ovary syndrome is diagnosed according to Rotterdam criteria by at least two of the following three key features: oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea; clinical and/or biochemical signs of hyperandrogenism; the presence of polycystic ovar...

Respiratory Muscle Function After Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy in Nonthyroidal Illness Syndrome

Although it is now recognized that a variety of respiratory abnormalities, such as diaphragmatic dysfunction, can be present in primary hypothyroidism and reverse with adequate hormone treatment, the role of thyroid hormone replacement therapy on respiratory system in patients with the nonthyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS) remains to be clarified. The NTIS has been found to ...

The Occurence of Secondary Adrenal Insufficiency in Hospitalised Patients With Exacerbation of COPD in Glucocorticoid Treatment Related to Differenct Gene Polymorphisms of the Glucocorticoid Receptor Gene

To investigate the correlation between four well-known polymorphisms of the glucocorticoid receptor gene (two with reduced sensitivity versus two with increased sensitivity) and the occurrence of secondary adrenal insufficiency in glucocorticoid-treated hospitalised patients with exacerbation of COPD.

Prevalence of Adrenal Insufficiency in Kidney Transplanted Patients in Glucocorticoid Treatment

The primary purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence of adrenal insufficiency in a population of patients with kidney transplants receiving low dose prednisone treatment. Development of glucocorticoid-induced adrenal insufficiency is a serious adverse effect to glucocorticoid treatment. The study includes a control group of patients with kidney failure currentl...

Study of IGRP-specific T Cell in Peripheral Blood of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

10 type 1 diabetes, 10 type 2 diabetes and 10 healthy controls matched with age and sex were enrolled in our study and their periphera blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) were isolated. We implemented ELISPOT(Enzyme-linked Immunospot Assay) to detect the interferon-γ (IFN-γ)which secreted by IGRP-specific T cell. Results were compared between these groups.

International Rapid-onset Obesity With Hypothalamic Dysfunction, Hypoventilation & Autonomic Dysregulation (ROHHAD) Registry

The Center for Autonomic Medicine in Pediatrics (CAMP) has collaborated with doctors from around the world to build the first International ROHHAD (Rapid-onset Obesity with Hypothalamic Dysfunction, Hypoventilation and Autonomic Dysregulation) REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) Registry. This registry is an international collaboration with ROHHAD patients and their p...

Comparative Low and High Dose of Dexmedethomidine in Pituitary Tumor Removal by Transphenoid Approach

Transnasal transsphenoidal (TNTS) resection of pituitary tumors involves wide fluctuation in hemodynamic parameter and causes hypertension and tachycardia due to intense noxious stimuli during various stages of surgery. None of routinely used anesthetic agents effectively blunts the undesirable hemodynamic responses, and therefore usually there is a need to use increased do...

Effects of Testosterone on Myocardial Repolarization

The main of the study is to evaluate the effect of testosterone on ventricular repolarization in patients with mild heart failure, at risk for sudden cardiac death. The electrocardiographic markers studied are QT variability index, the short term variability index.

Study of Testosterone and rHGH in FSHD

Effect of Varying Testosterone Levels on Insulin Sensitivity in Men With Idiopathic Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism (IHH)

The investigators are doing this research study to look at the relationship between testosterone (the main sex hormone in men) and insulin (the hormone that controls blood sugar levels) in men with Idiopathic Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism (IHH). The investigators hypothesize that normalizing testosterone levels in men with IHH enhances insulin sensitivity, reduces visceral...
