DAnalysis of the Distribution of Adrenal Steroids in a Control Population

2019-10-30 14:03:46 | BioPortfolio


This is a biomedical research study on the determination of adrenal steroids. It has been proposed in recent years as a tool for the diagnostic orientation of an adrenal pathology. The main objective is to analyze the distribution of blood and urinary adrenal steroid values in a population of 60 controls. The secondary objective is to establish reference values for each of these parameters, if their distribution permits, and to study the possible link between the blood pressure level, the orthostatism state, the potassium level and these adrenal steroids.

Screening and Stimulation Testing for Residual Secretion of Adrenal Steroid Hormones in Autoimmune Addison's Disease

In autoimmune adrenal insufficiency, or Addison's disease (AD), the immune system attacks the adrenal cortex. As a result, the adrenal cells producing hormones such as cortisol and aldoste...

The incidence of adrenal crisis in the postoperative period of HPA-axis insufficiency after surgical treatment for Cushing's syndrome.

Adrenal crisis, the most feared complication of adrenal insufficiency, is a potentially life-threatening state of acute glucocorticoid deficiency. After successful surgery for Cushing's syndrome, many...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An adrenal disease characterized by the progressive destruction of the ADRENAL CORTEX, resulting in insufficient production of ALDOSTERONE and HYDROCORTISONE. Clinical symptoms include ANOREXIA; NAUSEA; WEIGHT LOSS; MUSCLE WEAKNESS; and HYPERPIGMENTATION of the SKIN due to increase in circulating levels of ACTH precursor hormone which stimulates MELANOCYTES.

Neoplasm derived from displaced cells (rest cells) of the primordial ADRENAL GLANDS, generally in patients with CONGENITAL ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA. Adrenal rest tumors have been identified in TESTES; LIVER; and other tissues. They are dependent on ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN for growth and adrenal steroid secretion.

Conditions in which the production of adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS falls below the requirement of the body. Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by defects in the ADRENAL GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, or the HYPOTHALAMUS.

The inner portion of the adrenal gland. Derived from ECTODERM, adrenal medulla consists mainly of CHROMAFFIN CELLS that produces and stores a number of NEUROTRANSMITTERS, mainly adrenaline (EPINEPHRINE) and NOREPINEPHRINE. The activity of the adrenal medulla is regulated by the SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM.

A pair of glands located at the cranial pole of each of the two KIDNEYS. Each adrenal gland is composed of two distinct endocrine tissues with separate embryonic origins, the ADRENAL CORTEX producing STEROIDS and the ADRENAL MEDULLA producing NEUROTRANSMITTERS.
