Pediatrics Testotoxicosis Study [Bicalutamide Anastrozole Treatment for Testotoxicosis]
The primary objective of this study is to investigate whether bicalutamide given in combination with anastrozole once daily for 12 months is effective in treating testotoxicosis in boys. Testotoxicosis is a condition that causes early puberty in boys including growth in height, and development of muscles and sexual organs.

Development of SEXUAL MATURATION in boys and girls at a chronological age that is 2.5 standard deviations below the mean age at onset of PUBERTY in the population. This early maturation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis results in sexual precocity, elevated serum levels of GONADOTROPINS and GONADAL STEROID HORMONES such as ESTRADIOL and TESTOSTERONE.
A potent synthetic agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE with 3-(2-naphthyl)-D-alanine substitution at residue 6. Nafarelin has been used in the treatments of central PRECOCIOUS PUBERTY and ENDOMETRIOSIS.
The lack of development of SEXUAL MATURATION in boys and girls at a chronological age that is 2.5 standard deviations above the mean age at onset of PUBERTY in a population. Delayed puberty can be classified by defects in the hypothalamic LHRH pulse generator, the PITUITARY GLAND, or the GONADS. These patients will undergo spontaneous but delayed puberty whereas patients with SEXUAL INFANTILISM will not.
A neoplasm composed entirely of GRANULOSA CELLS, occurring mostly in the OVARY. In the adult form, it may contain some THECA CELLS. This tumor often produces ESTRADIOL and INHIBIN. The excess estrogen exposure can lead to other malignancies in women and PRECOCIOUS PUBERTY in girls. In rare cases, granulosa cell tumors have been identified in the TESTES.
Benign and malignant tumors of the HYPOTHALAMUS. Pilocytic astrocytomas and hamartomas are relatively frequent histologic types. Neoplasms of the hypothalamus frequently originate from adjacent structures, including the OPTIC CHIASM, optic nerve (see OPTIC NERVE NEOPLASMS), and pituitary gland (see PITUITARY NEOPLASMS). Relatively frequent clinical manifestations include visual loss, developmental delay, macrocephaly, and precocious puberty.

OBJECTIVES: Purify and characterize a testis-stimulating factor in the blood of adult volunteers who had precocious puberty as boys.
The purpose of this study is to determine if leuprolide acetate is safe and effective in treating children with Central Precocious Puberty, and to assess long term effects of leuprolide ac...
The purpose of this study is to determine if leuprolide acetate (11.25 mg and 30 mg) is safe in treating children with Central Precocious Puberty over a longer period of time (12 months).
The purpose of this study is to determine if new formulations (11.25 and 30 mg) of leuprolide are effective in treating children with Central Precocious Puberty.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety, effectiveness and pharmacokinetics of a study drug called Faslodex (fulvestrant) in the treatment of progressive precocious puberty (ea...
Despite standard clinical definitions and availability of diagnostic tests for precocious puberty, an intensive and structured investigation is needed in order to diagnose the aetiology in particular...
The response to gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) stimulation test does not predict the progression to true precocious puberty in girls with onset of premature thelarche in the first three years of life.
Context:Premature thelarche in early childhood may evolve into true precocious puberty. The individuation of cases progressing to precocious puberty is challenging.Objective:We analysed the parameters...
Germ cell tumors may lead to incomplete isosexual male precocity and are commonly located in the pineal gland. Germinomas of the basal ganglia are almost always unilateral and precocious puberty is a...
Aromatase inhibitors (AI) have been used in males in idiopathic short stature, constitutional delay of puberty, precocious puberty, gynecomastia, oligospermia, hypogonadism related to obesity and agei...
