Cardiac Function and Morphology Evaluated by Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Growth Hormone Deficiency and Acromegaly

2014-07-23 21:13:28 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To test the hypothesis that both lack and excess of growth hormone (GH) is associated with cardiac abnormalities. Cardiac function and morphology will be evaluated by MRI before and after treatment.

Description

It is an open prospective noninterventional clinical study. Treatment and follow-up will be according to usual guidelines, and will be unaffected by inclusion in the study. GHD patients will be treated with daily subcutaneous GH injections. Patients with acromegaly will be treated with either transsphenoidal surgery or by medical treatment with long acting somatostatin analogues, dopamine agonist, GH antagonist or combinations of these treatment modalities.

Patients will be examined by Cardiac MRI before treatment and after one year of treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of dwarfism caused by complete or partial GROWTH HORMONE deficiency, resulting from either the lack of GROWTH HORMONE-RELEASING FACTOR from the HYPOTHALAMUS or from the mutations in the growth hormone gene (GH1) in the PITUITARY GLAND. It is also known as Type I pituitary dwarfism. Human hypophysial dwarf is caused by a deficiency of HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE during development.

A 191-amino acid polypeptide hormone secreted by the human adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR), also known as GH or somatotropin. Synthetic growth hormone, termed somatropin, has replaced the natural form in therapeutic usage such as treatment of dwarfism in children with growth hormone deficiency.

An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by short stature, defective GROWTH HORMONE RECEPTOR, and failure to generate INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR I by GROWTH HORMONE. Laron syndrome is not a form of primary pituitary dwarfism (GROWTH HORMONE DEFICIENCY DWARFISM) but the result of mutation of the human GHR gene on chromosome 5.

The biologically active fragment of human growth hormone-releasing factor, consisting of GHRH(1-29)-amide. This N-terminal sequence is identical in several mammalian species, such as human, pig, and cattle. It is used to diagnose or treat patients with GROWTH HORMONE deficiency.

A pituitary tumor that secretes GROWTH HORMONE. In humans, excess HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE leads to ACROMEGALY.
