We will compare the features of 3D stereophotography of acromegaly patients with that of healthy people. We hope to develop a computerized model to help screening acromegaly patients for early detection and treatment.
The aim of the study is to investigate sleep apnea, circulation and metabolism in acromegaly before and after surgery and/or medical treatment.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether 6 months preoperative treatment with the somatostatin analogue octreotide improves the surgical outcome in patients with acromegaly.
Oral estrogens may be an effective adjuvant treatment for control of acromegaly in patients with resistance to somatostatin analogs.
Currently, the first line treatment for acromegaly is surgery, in order to remove the adenoma causing overproduction of growth hormone which leads to acromegaly. Octreotide LAR is approved for treatment of acromegaly after surgery if the disease is not controlled. This study was aimed to test the safety and efficacy of octreotide LAR in acromegalic patients who did not have any previous treatment for acromegaly.
Prevalence of sleep apnea syndrome in patients with acromegaly is about 70%. It seems that comorbidities of arterial hypertension or type 2 diabetes are more severe in patients with acromegaly and sleep apnea syndrome. Besides sleep apnea syndrome associated to acromegaly gives rise to few symptoms, that explains it is under diagnosed. The mechanisms of the association are based on maxillofacial modifications linked to acromegaly, a thickening of soft tissues with deposits of g...
Epidemiological data indicate that patients with active acromegaly have reduced life expectancy because of cardiovascular (60%) and respiratory diseases (25%) mainly (1-10). A post-treatment GH value
This is a human, prospective and retrospective, single-center study of patients who have undergone treatment for acromegaly in New York City since 1981. The project will characterize, among other factors, the treatment methods received by patients, who administered the treatments and the success of this therapy in terms of biochemical control.
Context: Acromegaly is the rare condition (3 to 4 new cases per million per year) due to Growth Hormone (GH) overproduction by a somatotrope pituitary adenoma, resulting in Insulin Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) excess. Consequently, many tissues of the organism become hypertrophied. Hypertrophy of gingival and dental tissues can lead to alteration of oral health. However, there are very few published data concerning oral impact of acromegaly. Objective: To do the most accurate clini...
This study is a prospective, noninteractive, observational, and longitudinal study aimed at assessing the treatment pattern and clinical outcome of acromegaly in China.
Acromegaly is a rare, serious condition characterized by chronic hypersecretion of growth hormone (GH), generally caused by a GH-secreting pituitary adenoma. This study will assess the long-term safety and efficacy of pasireotide in patients with acromegaly.
Surgery is the primary treatment of acromegaly. However, it often fails to cure the patient. The objective was to investigate whether 6-month preoperative treatment with octreotide improves the surgical outcome in newly diagnosed acromegalic patients.
This open-label, national, prospective, observational, non-interventional, multi-center, post marketing surveillance study was performed in order to examine the efficacy and safety of Somavert® in treatment of subjects with acromegaly and its effects on acromegaly related co-morbidities.
The purpose of the protocol is evaluate the safety, the pharmacodynamics and the pharmacokinetic of repeated administration of BIM23B065 in subjects with acromegaly.
To evaluate the pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) response of a hydrated and non-hydrated 84 mg octreotide implant in patients with acromegaly in the first 6 weeks of treatment.
The aim of the study is to identify predictive factors for the response to Lanreotide treatment in Acromegaly as well as in Neuroendocrine Tumours.
Observational, Cross-sectional, longitudinal, multi-center, diagnostic study Cross-sectional part of the study: To evaluate the influence of acromegaly on glucose tolerance Longitudinal part of the study: To evaluate the changes of impaired glucose tolerance during standard treatment of acromegaly. Adult patients with established acromegaly Cross-sectional part of the study: 150 patients Longitudinal part of the study: 58 patients
The purpose of the study is to determine if Pegvisomant is more efficacious than Sandostatin LAR Depot in normalizing IGF-I levels in treatment naive patients with acromegaly.
This study is designed to investigate the use of the somatostatin analogue- Somatuline Autogel in the primary medical treatment of the condition Acromegaly. Primary Objective: To test the hypothesis that a twelve month period of primary medical treatment of acromegaly with Somatuline Autogel will produce clinically significant reductions in tumour size from Baseline to Month 12 as assessed using MRI.
Octreotide capsule is a novel, orally-administered formulation of the commercially-available injectable drug octreotide. In a recent phase 3 trial, oral octreotide capsules demonstrated maintenance of biochemical response up to 13 months in the majority of patients with acromegaly previously managed with somatostatin analog injections (reference below).
To assess the safety and effectiveness of Somatuline® Depot (lanreotide) Injection when administered by a health care professional (HCP), the patient, the patient's partner or parent/guardian as part of their routine acromegaly care.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of repeated subcutaneous (under the skin) injections at different doses of BIM 23A760 on growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 levels in patients with acromegaly after 6 months of treatment.
The primary objective of the protocol is to define percentage of patients with acromegaly in relation to the total number of screened patients with confirmed clinically significant set of associated somatic disorders with the help of laboratory (Insulin-like Growth Factor I, Growth Hormone, Oral Glucose-Tolerance Test [IGF-1, GH, OGTT]) and instrumental examination methods (Magnetic Resonance Imaging [MRI]).
In this study, the investigators will evaluate the cardiac structure and function, focusing on the myocardial water content and interstitial fibrosis, in patients with active acromegaly in comparison with 1) healthy volunteers, 2) the same acromegalic patients that have received efficient therapy. The investigators hypothesize that the myocardial water content in acromegaly is increased as these patients present with sodium and water retention and that this myocardial water ...
Acromegaly is a rare, chronic, and debilitating disease, usually caused by a benign tumor on the pituitary gland, which leads to excessive production of growth hormone (GH). GH excess in turn causes overproduction of another hormone called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 levels are currently the most widely accepted measure of disease activity. In Canada, medical therapy with a type of medicine called "somatostatin analogues" (SSA), such as octreotide and lanreotid...
