This randomized phase II trial studies how well enzalutamide with or without radium Ra 223 dichloride in treating patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer that has spread to other places in the body. Enzalutamide is an androgen receptor inhibitor that may slow down the growth of prostate cancer by blocking the action of the male hormone testosterone and other male...
PK study to evaluate serum levels of testosterone post nasal delivery in two cohorts of hypogonadal boys.
Denervation following spinal cord injury (SCI) limits beneficial application of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES). SCI with denervation results in extensive muscle atrophy that is accompanied with several cardio-metabolic health risks. The current proposal provides a novel intervention by examining the effects of long pulse width stimulation (LPWS) and testosteron...
This study was undertaken to evaluate bone response in metastatic prostate cancer patients treated with Enzalutamide with or without Zoledronic Acid in combination with luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) analogue with the use of Whole Boby (WB) DW-MRI.
To assess the effects of testosterone replacement therapy on fat mass and other components of the metabolic syndrome. A randomized double-blind placebo controlled intervention study, followed by an open-label treatment phase. Results of this pilot study will be used to design a multicenter randomized controlled study in a large group of TC survivors
LHRH-a is an important hormone treatment in breast cancer especially in high-risk hormone receptor-positive patients or hormone receptor-negative but needing ovarian function protecting. The climacteric symptoms caused by LHRH-a are often and prominent, which is a common clinical problem.
The purpose of this study is to understand the course of rare genetic disorders that affect the brain. This data is being analyzed to gain a better understanding of the progression of the rare neurodegenerative disorders and the effects of interventions.
The goal of this study is to characterize the microbiome of children with Growth Hormone (GH) deficiency, following GH treatment initiation and compare it to healthy children and develop a model for predicting growth response to GH treatment based on clinical and laboratory parameters.
To analyze the diagnostic performance, safety, impact on clinical management, predictors of malignancy and cyto-pathological correlation of the EUS-FNA with AG. National multicenter retrospective study. Mailing-SEED partners. Participation: 17 Spanish centers. Inclusion period: April / 2003 to April / 2016 Inclusion criteria: All AG (Left / Right) punctured by EUS. A...
This research study in infant males with Klinefelter syndrome (47,XXY) will learn more about the effect of testosterone on early health and development. The study is a total of three visits over 6 months with assessments of motor skills, body composition (muscle and fat), and hormone levels. This is a randomized, placebo-controlled study but all infants will receive testost...
The present study was designed to assess the responsiveness of the hypothalamic pituitary gonadal axis to kisspeptin administration with increasing age in men.
A single dose trial to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of testosterone and anastrozole from subcutaneous testosterone and anastrozole (T+Ai) in premenopausal women
Growth hormone secreting pituitary adenomas(GHomas) produce excessive GH, stimulating excessive insulin like growth factor 1(IGF-1) synthesis in the liver, thus causing multiple systemic complications. The life expectancy of patients with untreated GHomas is shortened by ten years. The treatment goal of GHomas is to shrink the tumor volume and normalize GH and IGF-1. Under ...
This is a randomized, open-label, active controlled, Phase 2 study designed to assess the safety, tolerability, efficacy, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of weekly and semi-monthly doses of GX-H9 in the treatment of Paediatric Growth Hormone Deficiency (PGHD) as compared to the standard of care daily rhGH treatment.
The role of micronutrients in fertility has recently gained increased attention. In women who suffer from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and infertility, we aim to test the impact of a standardized, multinutrient supplementation on the course of PCOS-specific parameters namely anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), testosterone, and androstenedione. A total of 60 infertile women w...
Around 75% of breast cancers are defined and driven by Oestrogen receptor alpha (ERα) transcriptional activity. Standard treatment is endocrine therapy however clinical outcomes vary considerably, and a proportion of women with early breast cancer driven by ERα transcriptional activity develop drug resistance, and relapse with incurable, metastatic disease. Histori...
A 26 week trial of TransCon hGH, a long-acting growth hormone product, administered once-a-week. Approximately 150 children (males and females) with growth hormone deficiency (GHD) will be included. All study participants will receive TransCon hGH. This is a global trial that will be conducted in, but not limited to, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Patients with hormone sensitive oligometastatic prostate cancer (≤ 5 metastatic tumours outside of regional pelvic nodes with no more than 3 in any organ system) and no previous treatment to prostate will be treated with intermittent androgen deprivation therapy +/- chemotherapy, stereotactic radiotherapy to all metastases, and either radical prostatectomy or radiotherapy...
This is an open-label, safety study designed to assess the multiple-dose pharmacokinetics and potential for adrenal suppression following topical treatment with halobetasol propionate 0.05% spray applied twice-daily in adult patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. At least 40 eligible patients with plaque psoriasis that satisfy all eligibility criteria will be en...
For patients who underwent two-stage replacement of both knee joints (one knee surgery - one week term- the other knee surgery), postoperative pain and analgesic usage with patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) increased at the second stage, which suggests that central sensitization occurs within a short period (one week) in patients who undergo total knee arthroplasty (TKA). ...
Cortisol is a naturally occurring stress hormone, made by the adrenal glands in response to hormones produced by the pituitary and hypothalamus. Man-made forms of cortisol ('steroids', for example prednisolone) have been used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis since the 1950s; they are very effective at reducing inflammation. A normal response to taking steroid trea...
Evidence is accumulating that there are sex differences in energy and substrate metabolism. The positive or negative consequences of such metabolic differences between men and women need to be evaluated with respect to health outcomes. The importance of aberrant lipid metabolism in metabolic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, makes understanding ...
This is an open-label single arm prospective pilot study to study the effects of a single dose regimen of daily growth hormone medication on pre-pubertal children with Aggrecan deficiency. The growth response will be tacked over a 12 month period.
The specific objective of this study was to investigate the sensitivity of Kisspeptin receptor 1 (KISS1R) by determining the responsiveness of GnRH neuron to kisspeptin administration across the pubertal stages and adult group through measuring plasma LH (luteinizing hormone) and testosterone concentrations.
Pituitary adenoma can be difficult to cure with approximately a third of patients in contemporary series' undergoing incomplete resection. Over the last decade or so a handful of groups have described the use intraoperative ultrasound to improve resection. Although limited, these proof-of-concept studies suggest intraoperative ultrasound is a safe and effective technologica...
