SOM230 risks?

Recommended Posts

Dr. Ludlam asked me a few days ago if I would be interested in participating in the SOM230 trial. I know that someone on this board has completed the trial... I wish I could remember her name. She chatted with us a couple of Wednesdays ago and told us about her experience. If anyone else has any info to share regarding this trial, please post. I'm considering participating, but I'm concerned about any potential risks. Specifically, I thought I remember her mentioning that the study medication is "hard on your liver", but I could be mistaken. Hmmm.

This drug is already used to treat acromegaly. Tammy noticed alot of improvement on the trial. It is a 15 day trial.


If results are promising, this could lead to a medicine approach to treating Cushings.


I'd do it... but... I didn't meet the criteria for the protocol.


Good luck!
