My name is Chi Tran. I am one of the clinical research coordinators at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. I was referred to this website by my colleague and was amazed at how informative your site is. I was looking through the forum to see if there is any place to post research-related info. but couldn't. So I decided to introduce myself here.

 

I'd like to inform everyone about a clinical trial that we are currently conducting at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore- The SEISMIC Study.

 

The SEISMIC study is a 6-month open-label Phase III multi-center clinical trial of CORLUX in the treatment of the signs and symptoms of Cushing's Syndrome

 

SEISMIC is enrolling subjects with endogenous Cushing's Syndrome who are 18 years and older.

 

Investigative sites are located throughout the United States and Sinai Hospital of Baltimore is the only site for the East Coast area. In some cases, travel will be arranged and paid for by the sponsor.

 

If anyone is interested, please call us @ 410-601-0960 or visit www.cushingsstudy.com.

Interesting study. I will be most interested in seeing the results, especially on how Mifepristone affects other hormones and overall cortisol suppression and wellness.

 

Thanks for taking the time to post here!

Welcome to the site! MaryO has done us a great service maintaining this and we would love to read/learn anything that you have to offer us. It's great that you are interested. The SEISMIC study sounds promising. Please update us on information as you are able.

 

Thanks,

Hi Missaf and Kristin!

 

It is a very interesting study. It is also an alternative especially for patients with Cushing's syndrome who have not had effective results from surgical or radiation treatment. We are enrolling patients who cannot undergo surgery and who would still benefit from medical therapy. Because it is a research study, patients are being monitored closely during active treatment and have access to our doctors 24/7.

 

Thank you for your replies.

Hi Chi,

 

I am one of the board moderators. We do have a section of the board for Research and News Items and I feel like that is where this post belongs.

 

Because of the unique nature of your post (thanks for thinking of us!) I'm going to put a hold on posting replies to your message until I can contact another moderator or two and make a decision about where this information should be. At that time we will reopen comments.

 

I hope you have reviewed our TOS Board Rules, but if you have not please take the chance to have a look, they're not too long.

 

If any board members are interested in this study I suggest that they visit the website or use the contact information provided in Chi's message.
