Washington, September 23 (ANI): Researchers are hopeful that a clinical trial of a new drug will help patients of adrenocortical
carcinoma (ACC), a rare but aggressive cancer that hits the adrenal glands.
The topics include adrenocortical
dysfunction, the adrenals in oncology, imaging adrenal dysfunction, the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the adrenal glands, single proton imaging, positron emission tomography (PET), and evolving functional and advanced image analysis techniques for characterizing adrenal lesions.
A series of adipokine-triggered enzymes activate angiotensin II release and boost the sensitivity of adrenocortical
cells, triggering aldosterone secretion and producing the mild hyperaldosteronism state, he explained (Int.
Interestingly, of these 13 patients who were hypocortisolic, only six had symptoms and signs of adrenocortical
insufficiency and all these 6 patients had a 0800 h serum cortisol of [less than or equal to] 100nmol/l ([less than or equal to] 3.
The sum of the latter 3 major urinary glucocorticoid metabolites (GC3), which reflects adrenocortical
glucocorticoid secretion, was determined to adjust for the adrenal gland's secretory activity.
