Hollis-Eden Pharmaceuticals, a development-stage pharmaceutical company, is engaged in the development of a class of adrenal steroids for a broad array of potential indications.
A sensitivity analysis indicated the parameter uncertainties and identified transport and metabolic processes that most influenced the concentrations of primary adrenal steroids, aldosterone and Cortisol.
Normal levels of circulating adrenal steroids appear to be necessary for accurate performance on spatial tasks, which is not surprising given the role of the hippocampus in spatial learning and memory.
The results presented today support the concept that it is possible to develop a targeted therapy to block HRPC-associated tumors by interrupting their ability to use adrenal steroids as growth factors.
After the commencement of World War II, federal funding of adrenal steroid research quickly waned but Merck continued their collaboration with Kendall and Hench.
a development-stage pharmaceutical company based in San Diego, California, is engaged in the development of a class of adrenal steroids for a broad array of potential indications.
Given the results of our ongoing research, as announced today, we are increasingly confident that our efforts to deliver on the promise of these compounds as fundamental regulators of biological processes may lead to a renaissance in the therapeutic use of adrenal steroids.
To exclude a deficiency of one of the enzymes in the pathway of steroid biosynthesis as a cause, the samples were tested for adrenal steroids (27).
These results are particularly gratifying because we have launched a significant effort to acquire and expand our intellectual property position in this class of adrenal steroids, as our goal is to become the world leader in developing and commercializing these molecules into important pharmaceuticals that can treat a wide array of infectious diseases and immune system disorders.
Testing for adrenal steroids is also useful for differential diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome and nonclassic forms of CAH, which may sometimes be indistinguishable by clinical presentation and sonography (6).
Hollis-Eden's therapeutic approach is designed to interact at what is believed to be the trigger point of this dysregulation, the hormonal balance between corticosteroids and other adrenal steroids, essentially offering a hormone replacement therapy that may potentially lead to stimulation of the immune system in conditions of immunosuppression.
Some states have been reluctant to screen for CAH because the most commonly used assays have poor positive predictive values, especially in preterm and acutely ill neonates, in whom the adrenal steroids are physiologically increased.
Lardy is widely recognized as an expert in the field of adrenal steroids and their potential in the treatment of disease, and we are pleased to be working with him and his team," said James M.
He joined the neuroendocrine research group in the Institute of Physiology in Pecs, where he became involved in research projects investigating the interactions of neuronal peptides, adrenal steroids, and the central nervous system's adaptation processes.
