  1. It's more complicated than a cure rate. There's a comprehensive report about the success and adverse event rates on the fda website. http://www.fda.gov/downloads/AdvisoryCommittees/CommitteesMeetingMaterials/Drugs/EndocrinologicandMetabolicDrugsAdvisoryCommittee/UCM326812.pdf
  2. The full text article can be found at: http://content.karger.com/ProdukteDB/produkte.asp?Aktion=ShowPDF&ArtikelNr=000314299&Ausgabe=254530&ProduktNr=223855&filename=000314299.pdf
  3. I think anything that gives an early warning of AI would be highly desirable, even if it's not perfect or useful for clinical diagnosis. Forty years ago, we would pee on a paper strip to learn of glucose was spilling. It wasn't as powerful as glucometers, but it was lifesaving.
  4. hope, do you think endocrine tumors may run in your family?
  5. Their limit of 38 nmol/L is the same as a limit of 1.38 ug/dL. (38/27.6=1.38) Your report is in ug/mL so their limit in the same units as your report would be 0.138 ug/mL. You're over limit at 0.5 ug/mL. Conversion of their limit is from nmol/L to ug/dL is accomplished by dividing by 27.6. They reported in mL instead of dL, so move the decimal one place. Another way to look at this is you were 5 ug/dL (0.5 ug/mL) which is larger than 1.38 ug/dL. Working the other way, your 0.5 ug/mL would convert to 138 nmol/L ( 0.5 ug/mL * 27.6 * 10 = 138) 138 is way larger than 38 = cushing's.
  6. Corlux is getting closer to approval. Corcept Therapeutics Submits NDA for Corlux in Cushing?s Syndrome
  7. Trepanation can be good for you.

  8. I read somewhere, can't remember where, that dopamine is transported down the pituitary stalk. If so, what is the connection?
  9. The problem is that dopamine agonist pose the risk of heart valve damage and pulmonary hypertension.
