Characterisation of myocardial structure and function in adult-onset growth hormone deficiency using cardiac magnetic resonance.
Growth hormone (GH) can profoundly influence cardiac function. While GH excess causes well-defined cardiac pathology, fewer data are available regarding the more subtle cardiac changes seen in GH deficiency (GHD). This ...
Clinical and Pathological Aspects of Silent Pituitary Adenomas.
(Oxford University Press, 2018-07-17)
CONTEXT: Silent pituitary adenomas are anterior pituitary tumors with hormone synthesis but without signs or symptoms of hormone hypersecretion. They have been increasingly recognized and represent challenging diagnostic ...
Metformin to reduce metabolic complications and inflammation in patients on systemic glucocorticoid therapy: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, proof-of-concept, phase 2 trial.
BACKGROUND: An urgent need to reduce the metabolic side-effects of glucocorticoid overexposure has been recognised, as glucocorticoid excess can lead to Cushing's syndrome, which is associated with high morbidity. We aimed ...
Pituitary tumour fibroblast-derived cytokines influence tumour aggressiveness.
(BioScientifica [, 2019-12)
Tumour-associated fibroblasts (TAFs) are key elements of the tumour microenvironment, but their role in pituitary neuroendocrine tumours (PitNETs) has been little explored. We hypothesised that TAF-derived cytokines may ...
