Brief Summary:
This proposal will evaluate the glucocorticoid mediated changes in body fat distribution and metabolism that occur in patients with Cushing's disease. Our objective is to identify the mechanisms that influence both the accumulation of lipodystrophic fat and also the changes in energy expenditure and metabolism that accompany them. These findings may have important implications not only for those with Cushing's disease, but for the millions of Americans who are treated with chronic glucocorticoids for an array of clinical conditions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Cushing's Syndrome Procedure: Treatment of Cushing's

Layout table for study information
Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 8 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Novel Mediators of the Lipodystrophy and Metabolic Consequences of Cushing's Disease
Actual Study Start Date : July 16, 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date : March 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : March 2020

Intervention Details:
  • Procedure: Treatment of Cushing's
    Surgical resection of ACTH-secreting tumor to achieve cure of hypercortisolism
    Other Name: Medical treatment of hypercortisolism

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Energy Expenditure [ Time Frame: Change from baseline REE at 3 months post-treatment ]
    Resting energy expenditure (REE) will be measured by whole room indirect calorimetry prior to and following cure of Cushing's Disease (CD).

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total body adipose tissue volume [ Time Frame: Change in total body adipose tissue volume from baseline at 3 months post-treatment ]
    Whole body MRI will be utilized to measure total body adipose tissue volume
