|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Cushing's Syndrome||Drug: metyrapone||Phase 3|
This study will include Cushing disease patients with persistent or recurrent disease (after pituitary surgery) or who are newly diagnosed but are unsuitable for early surgery or wish to defer surgery. It will also include patients with ectopic ACTH syndrome (either occult, after surgery failure, or inoperable or metastatic) and patients with Cushing's syndrome from adrenal causes.
The ability of metyrapone to normalize urinary free cortisol levels will be assessed during up to 36 weeks (9 months) of treatment. Patients participating in this study and who are controlled or close to the target at the end of a 3-months period may continue with an optional extension period of 6 months in which the long-term efficacy and safety profiles of metyrapone will be assessed. This extension study is intended to provide new findings to consolidate existing efficacy and safety data on metyrapone in the treatment of Cushing's syndrome.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||50 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Single Group Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Prospective, Single Arm, Open-label, Multicenter, International Study to Assess the Effects of Metyrapone in Patients With Endogenous Cushing's Syndrome During a 12-week Treatment Period Followed by an Extension Period of 24 Weeks|
|Study Start Date :||April 2015|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||October 2019|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||April 2020|
Metyrapone will be administered orally in an open-label fashion. Two possible initiation doses will be used depending on the severity of hypercortisolism, dose will then be adjusted (up or down-titrated) during the first month on an individual basis according to clinical tolerance and cortisol levels achieved.
