Adrenal Cortex Diseases: Pathological processes of the ADRENAL CORTEX.Adrenal Cortex: The outer layer of the adrenal gland. It is derived from MESODERM and comprised of three zones (outer ZONA GLOMERULOSA, middle ZONA FASCICULATA, and inner ZONA RETICULARIS) with each producing various steroids preferentially, such as ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and ANDROSTENEDIONE. Adrenal cortex function is regulated by pituitary ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN.Adrenal Glands: A pair of glands located at the cranial pole of each of the two KIDNEYS. Each adrenal gland is composed of two distinct endocrine tissues with separate embryonic origins, the ADRENAL CORTEX producing STEROIDS and the ADRENAL MEDULLA producing NEUROTRANSMITTERS.Adrenal Cortex Neoplasms: Tumors or cancers of the ADRENAL CORTEX.Adrenal Medulla: The inner portion of the adrenal gland. Derived from ECTODERM, adrenal medulla consists mainly of CHROMAFFIN CELLS that produces and stores a number of NEUROTRANSMITTERS, mainly adrenaline (EPINEPHRINE) and NOREPINEPHRINE. The activity of the adrenal medulla is regulated by the SYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM.Zona Reticularis: The inner zone of the adrenal cortex. This zone produces the enzymes that convert PREGNENOLONE, a 21-carbon steroid, to 19-carbon steroids (DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and ANDROSTENEDIONE) via 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYPREGNENOLONE.Adrenal Gland Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the ADRENAL GLANDS.Adrenal Gland Diseases: Pathological processes of the ADRENAL GLANDS.Adrenocorticotropic Hormone: An anterior pituitary hormone that stimulates the ADRENAL CORTEX and its production of CORTICOSTEROIDS. ACTH is a 39-amino acid polypeptide of which the N-terminal 24-amino acid segment is identical in all species and contains the adrenocorticotrophic activity. Upon further tissue-specific processing, ACTH can yield ALPHA-MSH and corticotrophin-like intermediate lobe peptide (CLIP).Zona Fasciculata: The wide middle zone of the adrenal cortex. This zone produces a series of enzymes that convert PREGNENOLONE to cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) via 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYPROGESTERONE.Cerebral Cortex: The thin layer of GRAY MATTER on the surface of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES that develops from the TELENCEPHALON and folds into gyri and sulchi. It reaches its highest development in humans and is responsible for intellectual faculties and higher mental functions.Adrenal Insufficiency: Conditions in which the production of adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS falls below the requirement of the body. Adrenal insufficiency can be caused by defects in the ADRENAL GLANDS, the PITUITARY GLAND, or the HYPOTHALAMUS.Prefrontal Cortex: The rostral part of the frontal lobe, bounded by the inferior precentral fissure in humans, which receives projection fibers from the MEDIODORSAL NUCLEUS OF THE THALAMUS. The prefrontal cortex receives afferent fibers from numerous structures of the DIENCEPHALON; MESENCEPHALON; and LIMBIC SYSTEM as well as cortical afferents of visual, auditory, and somatic origin.Visual Cortex: Area of the OCCIPITAL LOBE concerned with the processing of visual information relayed via VISUAL PATHWAYS.Zona Glomerulosa: The narrow subcapsular outer zone of the adrenal cortex. This zone produces a series of enzymes that convert PREGNENOLONE to ALDOSTERONE. The final steps involve three successive oxidations by CYTOCHROME P-450 CYP11B2.Steroid 11-beta-Hydroxylase: A mitochondrial cytochrome P450 enzyme that catalyzes the 11-beta-hydroxylation of steroids in the presence of molecular oxygen and NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE. This enzyme, encoded by CYP11B1 gene, is important in the synthesis of CORTICOSTERONE and HYDROCORTISONE. Defects in CYP11B1 cause congenital adrenal hyperplasia (ADRENAL HYPERPLASIA, CONGENITAL).Motor Cortex: Area of the FRONTAL LOBE concerned with primary motor control located in the dorsal PRECENTRAL GYRUS immediately anterior to the central sulcus. It is comprised of three areas: the primary motor cortex located on the anterior paracentral lobule on the medial surface of the brain; the premotor cortex located anterior to the primary motor cortex; and the supplementary motor area located on the midline surface of the hemisphere anterior to the primary motor cortex.Adrenocortical Adenoma: A benign neoplasm of the ADRENAL CORTEX. It is characterized by a well-defined nodular lesion, usually less than 2.5 cm. Most adrenocortical adenomas are nonfunctional. The functional ones are yellow and contain LIPIDS. Depending on the cell type or cortical zone involved, they may produce ALDOSTERONE; HYDROCORTISONE; DEHYDROEPIANDROSTERONE; and/or ANDROSTENEDIONE.Adrenal Cortex Function Tests: Examinations that evaluate and monitor hormone production in the adrenal cortex.Adrenal Cortex HormonesAdrenocortical Carcinoma: A malignant neoplasm of the ADRENAL CORTEX. Adrenocortical carcinomas are unencapsulated anaplastic (ANAPLASIA) masses sometimes exceeding 20 cm or 200 g. They are more likely to be functional than nonfunctional, and produce ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES that may result in hypercortisolism (CUSHING SYNDROME); HYPERALDOSTERONISM; and/or VIRILISM.Auditory Cortex: The region of the cerebral cortex that receives the auditory radiation from the MEDIAL GENICULATE BODY.Adrenal Hyperplasia, Congenital: A group of inherited disorders of the ADRENAL GLANDS, caused by enzyme defects in the synthesis of cortisol (HYDROCORTISONE) and/or ALDOSTERONE leading to accumulation of precursors for ANDROGENS. Depending on the hormone imbalance, congenital adrenal hyperplasia can be classified as salt-wasting, hypertensive, virilizing, or feminizing. Defects in STEROID 21-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 11-BETA-HYDROXYLASE; STEROID 17-ALPHA-HYDROXYLASE; 3-beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASES); TESTOSTERONE 5-ALPHA-REDUCTASE; or steroidogenic acute regulatory protein; among others, underlie these disorders.Somatosensory Cortex: Area of the parietal lobe concerned with receiving sensations such as movement, pain, pressure, position, temperature, touch, and vibration. It lies posterior to the central sulcus.Cosyntropin: A synthetic peptide that is identical to the 24-amino acid segment at the N-terminal of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. ACTH (1-24), a segment similar in all species, contains the biological activity that stimulates production of CORTICOSTEROIDS in the ADRENAL CORTEX.Aldosterone: A hormone secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX that regulates electrolyte and water balance by increasing the renal retention of sodium and the excretion of potassium.Adrenalectomy: Excision of one or both adrenal glands. (From Dorland, 28th ed)Adrenodoxin: An iron-sulfur protein which serves as an electron carrier in enzymatic steroid hydroxylation reactions in adrenal cortex mitochondria. The electron transport system which catalyzes this reaction consists of adrenodoxin reductase, NADP, adrenodoxin, and cytochrome P-450.Hydrocortisone: The main glucocorticoid secreted by the ADRENAL CORTEX. Its synthetic counterpart is used, either as an injection or topically, in the treatment of inflammation, allergy, collagen diseases, asthma, adrenocortical deficiency, shock, and some neoplastic conditions.Corticosterone: An adrenocortical steroid that has modest but significant activities as a mineralocorticoid and a glucocorticoid. (From Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1437)Aldosterone Synthase: A mitochondrial cytochrome P450 enzyme that catalyzes the 18-hydroxylation of steroids in the presence of molecular oxygen and NADPH-specific flavoprotein. This enzyme, encoded by CYP11B2 gene, is important in the conversion of CORTICOSTERONE to 18-hydroxycorticosterone and the subsequent conversion to ALDOSTERONE.Cholesterol Side-Chain Cleavage Enzyme: A mitochondrial cytochrome P450 enzyme that catalyzes the side-chain cleavage of C27 cholesterol to C21 pregnenolone in the presence of molecular oxygen and NADPH-FERRIHEMOPROTEIN REDUCTASE. This enzyme, encoded by CYP11A1 gene, catalyzes the breakage between C20 and C22 which is the initial and rate-limiting step in the biosynthesis of various gonadal and adrenal steroid hormones.
(1/59) Relationships between environmental organochlorine contaminant residues, plasma corticosterone concentrations, and intermediary metabolic enzyme activities in Great Lakes herring gull embryos.

Experiments were conducted to survey and detect differences in plasma corticosterone concentrations and intermediary metabolic enzyme activities in herring gull (Larus argentatus) embryos environmentally exposed to organochlorine contaminants in ovo. Unincubated fertile herring gull eggs were collected from an Atlantic coast control site and various Great Lakes sites in 1997 and artificially incubated in the laboratory. Liver and/or kidney tissues from approximately half of the late-stage embryos were analyzed for the activities of various intermediary metabolic enzymes known to be regulated, at least in part, by corticosteroids. Basal plasma corticosterone concentrations were determined for the remaining embryos. Yolk sacs were collected from each embryo and a subset was analyzed for organochlorine contaminants. Regression analysis of individual yolk sac organochlorine residue concentrations, or 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin equivalents (TEQs), with individual basal plasma corticosterone concentrations indicated statistically significant inverse relationships for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDDs/PCDFs), total polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), non-ortho PCBs, and TEQs. Similarly, inverse relationships were observed for the activities of two intermediary metabolic enzymes (phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and malic enzyme) when regressed against PCDDs/PCDFs. Overall, these data suggest that current levels of organochlorine contamination may be affecting the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis and associated intermediary metabolic pathways in environmentally exposed herring gull embryos in the Great Lakes.  (+info)

(2/59) Dual effects of prolonged ACTH stimulation on 4-hydroxyaminoquinoline 1-oxide-induced adrenocortical lesions in rats.

The effects of a long-acting synthetic ACTH on 4-hydroxyaminoquinoline 1-oxide (4HAQO)-induced adrenocortical lesions were investigated in female rats. A total of 140 6-week-old rats were divided into 4 equal groups, given a single s.c. injection of 7 mg/kg 4HAQO or vehicle, followed by repeated sc administration of the synthetic ACTH or no further treatment. Subgroups of 10 rats in each group were sequentially sacrificed at weeks 20, 30, and 40. Adenomas and adenomatous nodules developed in the adrenal cortex of animals receiving 4HAQO and the chronic ACTH stimulation. Both lesions were located in the deeper zones of the adrenal cortex adjacent to the medulla and were composed of large-sized, clear-type cells. From week 20, middle zone, cortical cystic degeneration, which mimics the age-associated degenerative change named adrenal peliosis, was frequently observed in the adrenal glands of animals treated with 4HAQO alone. Its development was inhibited by ACTH. In the control animals, peliotic changes occurred at low incidence and only at the termination of experiment. These results indicate that long-term stimulation of ACTH promotes the development of adrenocortical tumors but suppresses the occurrence of adrenal peliosis in rats treated with 4HAQO.  (+info)

(3/59) Lower baseline plasma cortisol and prolactin together with increased body temperature and higher mCPP-induced cortisol responses in men with pedophilia.

There is some evidence that hormonal and serotonergic alterations may play a role in the pathophysiology of paraphilias. The aims of the present study were to examine: 1) baseline plasma cortisol, plasma prolactin, and body temperature; and 2) cortisol, prolactin, body temperature, as well as behavioral responses to meta-chlorophenylpiperazine (mCPP) and placebo in pedophiles and normal men. Pedophiles showed significantly lower baseline plasma cortisol and prolactin concentrations and a higher body temperature than normal volunteers. The mCPP-induced cortisol responses were significantly greater in pedophiles than in normal volunteers. In normal volunteers, mCPP-induced a hyperthermic response, whereas in pedophiles no such response was observed. mCPP induced different behavioral responses in pedophiles than in normal men. In pedophiles, but not in normal men, mCPP increased the sensations "feeling dizzy, " "restless," and "strange" and decreased the sensation "feeling hungry". The results suggest that there are several serotonergic disturbances in pedophiles. It is hypothesized that the results are compatible with a decreased activity of the serotonergic presynaptic neuron and a 5-HT2 postsynaptic receptor hyperresponsivity.  (+info)

(4/59) Structure-activity relationships for ulcerogenic and adrenocorticolytic effects of alkyl nitriles, amines, and thiols.

In rats, a single administration of acrylonitrile (vinyl cyanide) produces a rapidly occurring bilateral adrenal apoplexy. Structure-activity studies have shown that a close derivative, propionitrile (ethyl cyanide), causes duodenal ulcer without markedly affecting the adrenal glands. Prolonging the two-carbon chain of propionitrile by a methyl group (n-butyronitrile) enhances, replacing the methyl by bromide or nitrile decreases, while substitution by an amino group abolistes the ulcerogenic potency and variably affects the adrenocorticolytic action. On assaying a large number of nonnitrile compounds as well for ulcerogenic effect, such as thiols and amines, this effect was found to be related to a two-carbon structure bearing electronegative radicals on one or both ends of the chain.  (+info)

(5/59) Molecular cloning, chromosomal localization of human peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor and PKA regulatory subunit type 1A (PRKAR1A)-associated protein PAP7, and studies in PRKAR1A mutant cells and tissues.

A mouse protein that interacts with the peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor (PBR) and cAMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA) regulatory subunit RIalpha (PRKAR1A), named PBR and PKA-associated protein 7 (PAP7), was identified and shown to be involved in hormone-induced steroid biosynthesis. We report the identification of the human PAP7 gene, its expression pattern, genomic structure, and chromosomal mapping to 1q32-1q41. Human PAP7 is a 60-kDa protein highly homologous to the rodent protein. PAP7 is widely present in human tissues and highly expressed in seminal vesicles, pituitary, thyroid, pancreas, renal cortex, enteric epithelium, muscles, myocardium and in steroidogenic tissues, including the gonads and adrenal cortex. These tissues are also targets of Carney complex (CNC), a multiple neoplasia syndrome caused by germline inactivating PRKAR1A mutations (PRKAR1A-mut) and associated with primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD) and increased steroid synthesis. PAP7 and PRKAR1A expression were studied in PPNAD and in lymphoblasts from patients bearing PRKAR1A-mut. Like PRKAR1A, PAP7 was decreased in CNC lymphocytes and PPNAD nodules, but not in the surrounding cortex. These studies showed that, like in the mouse, human PAP7 is highly expressed in steroidogenic tissues, where it follows the pattern of PRKAR1A expression, suggesting that it participates in PRKAR1A-mediated tumorigenesis and hypercortisolism.  (+info)

(6/59) Allgrove or 4 "A" syndrome: an autosomal recessive syndrome causing multisystem neurological disease.

Allgrove's or "4 A" syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive condition with alacrima, achalasia, autonomic disturbance, and ACTH insensitivity among other features. Recent studies have identified mutations in the AAAS, a candidate gene on chromosome 12q13 in such patients. Manifestations in adult patients are rarely reported. The syndrome usually presents during the first decade of life with dysphagia or severe (occasionally fatal) hypoglycaemic or hypotensive attacks, related to adrenocortical insufficiency. Onset of adrenal insufficiency or other features may be delayed to adulthood. In contrast with paediatric patients, adult patients with Allgrove's syndrome may present with multisystem neurological disease; the childhood history of achalasia or alacrima may be overlooked. The authors describe two families with two affected siblings and a further unrelated patient with typical clinical features of Allgrove's syndrome, who exhibit signs of multisystem neurological disease including hyperreflexia, muscle wasting, dysarthria, ataxia, optic atrophy, and intellectual impairment. None of the cases have developed adrenal insufficiency but all have progressive neurological disability. Autonomic dysfunction was a significant cause of morbidity in two cases. The three index cases represent the longest described follow up of Allgrove's syndrome into adulthood. It is speculated that they represent a subgroup of patients who follow an often undiagnosed chronic neurological course. Recognition of the syndrome presenting in adult life permits treatment of unrecognised autonomic dysfunction, adrenal insufficiency and dysphagia, and appropriate genetic advice.  (+info)

(7/59) Cushing's syndrome due to bilateral adrenocortical adenomas with unique histological features.

Cushing's syndrome due to bilateral cortisol-secreting adenomas rarely occurs. We present a case of Cushing's syndrome due to bilateral adenomas. Both adenomas had distinct cell compositions, and were compared with emphasis on immunohistochemical and enzyme histochemical analysis for cytochrome P450(11beta) and 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (3betaHSD). A 37 year-old female was diagnosed with ACTH-independent Cushing's syndrome based on physical findings and hormonal evaluation. High-resolution CT scan showed bilateral adrenocortical adenomas and atrophied glands. 131I-methylnorcholesterol incorporation into both glands suggested both adenomas were functional. Clinical diagnosis prior to surgery was ACTH-independent Cushing's syndrome due to functioning bilateral adenomas. The left adrenal gland was totally resected, while the right one was partially resected by laparoscopic approach. Both adenomas were black on cut sections, and were comparatively evaluated by immunohistochemical and enzyme histochemical analysis for P450(11beta) and 3betaSD. The left adenoma was 1.6 cm in diameter and had a complex cellular composition and enzyme expression similar to that of primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD), while the right adenoma was 1.8 cm in diameter with compact cells typical of a solitary cortisol-producing adenoma. Adjacent bilateral adrenal cortex showed marked atrophy, but contained several micronodules. Serum cortisol levels, both at basal and after a low dodexamethasone, normalized thirteen months after surgery. In conclusion, the present case of Cushing's syndrome with bilateral adrenal adenomas demonstrated for the first time the simultaneous occurrence of two distinct adenomas, an ordinary cortisol-producing adenoma and a PPNAD-like adenoma. Further case reports of multiple adrenal adenomas should be well-analyzed to clarify whether the results from this case represent a new subgroup of ACTH-independent Cushing's syndrome.  (+info)

(8/59) Aldosteronism associated with adrenal cortical adenoma.

An electrolyte-regulating corticoid has been identified and given the name aldosterone. This hormone may be produced in amounts above normal in adrenal cortical tumors in hyperplastic adrenal glands and in normal appearing adrenal glands. Overproduction of aldosterone is accompanied by certain characteristic clinical manifestations which should suggest the diagnosis. The diagnosis may be supported by examinations available in most well equipped clinical laboratories. Bioassay of aldosterone in the urine and estimation of exchangeable body sodium and potassium, using radioactive salts, are necessary for confirmation of the diagnosis.Since the description of this salt-retaining hormone by Simpson and Tait and the discovery of its chemical structure by Reichstein in 1954, reports of 14 cases have been published. Surgical removal of the offending tissue gives spectacular relief from the very distressing symptoms.  (+info)

Primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD) is a pituitary-independent, primary adrenal form of hypercortisolism characterized by (a) resistance to suppression by dexamethasone and abolition of the normal diurnal rhythm of cortisol secretion, and (b) distinctive, bilateral, histopathologic changes of the adrenal glands, such as the formation of variably sized, pigmented nodular adenomas, loss of normal zonation and atrophy of the extranodular cortex. PPNAD can be associated with a variety of other manifestations, such as myxomas of the skin, heart, breast and other sites, psammomatous melanotic swannomas involving the peripheral nervous system (PNS), lentigines and blue nevi of the skin and mucosae, growth hormone (GH)-producing adenomas of the pituitary, testicular Sertoli cell tumors, and possibly other neoplasms (adrenocortical and thyroid follicular carcinoma, and ovarian cysts). These associations constitute a distinct clinical syndrome, Carney complex, a genetic syndrome. At ...
Carney complex and its subsets LAMB syndrome and NAME syndrome are autosomal dominant conditions comprising myxomas of the heart and skin, hyperpigmentation of the skin (lentiginosis), and endocrine overactivity. It is distinct from Carneys triad. Approximately 7% of all cardiac myxomas are associated with Carney complex. The spotty skin pigmentation and lentigines occur most commonly on the face, especially on the lips, eyelids, conjunctiva and oral mucosa. Cardiac myxomas may lead to embolic strokes and heart failure and may present with fever, joint pain, shortness of breath, diastolic rumble and tumor plop. Myxomas may also occur outside the heart, usually in the skin and breast. Endocrine tumors may manifest as disorders such as Cushing syndrome. The most common endocrine gland manifestation is an ACTH-independent Cushings syndrome due to primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD). The LAMB acronym refers to lentigines, atrial myxomas, and blue nevi. NAME refers to nevi, ...
Introduction: We present a rare variety of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH)-independent Cushings syndrome known as primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD). Clinical Picture: The patient initially underwent unilateral adrenalectomy for what was thought to be a left adrenal adenoma. Outcome: Partial resolution of symptoms and demonstrable persistent hypercortisolism after surgery prompted further evaluation with findings leading to the diagnosis of Carney complex. A review of the adrenal histology was consistent with PPNAD. Conclusion: This entity of PPNAD, which has rarely been reported in Asians, forms part of the Carney complex. The diagnosis may not be simple and straightforward, as illustrated in this patient ...

This is a ferret that is suffering from adrenal disease. Adrenal disease is a general term for any condition where one or multiple tumorous growths on the adrenal gland negatively affect the balance of hormone creation in the ferrets body. It can be treated through surgery or with a drug called Lupron, which helps stop the excess production of hormones caused by the tumor.
DefinitionExogenous Cushing syndrome is a form of Cushing syndrome that occurs in people taking glucocorticoid (also called corticosteroid) hormones.

A very rare case of congenital adrenocortical insufficiency accompanied with ventricular septal defect, is presented. Surgical treatment together with glucocorticoid replacement therapy was performed. The patient, a 4-month-old girl with congenital adrenocortical insufficiency, had been treated with a long-term adrenocortical hormones replacement. Surgical treatment for ventricular septal defect was applied in order to reduce the risk of heart failure. The administration dose of glucocorticoid was determined according to the body surface area and chronologic change of serum cortisol. Following the surgical treatment, and with adequate glucocorticoid replacement, the patient showed a good clinical outcome. In conclusion, we showed a beneficial treatment protocol with adequate glucocorticoid replacement in open heart surgery for a case of congenital adrenocortical insufficiency ...

Carneys complex (CNC) is an autosomal dominant disorder, which was described in 1985 as the complex of myxomas, spotty pigmentation, and endocrine overactivity in 40 patients (1). Since then, more than 500 index cases have been reported, resulting in better definition of the disease and the establishment of diagnostic criteria (2, 3). As implied from the initial description, CNC is not only a multiple neoplasia syndrome, but also causes a variety of pigmented lesions of the skin and mucosae. (4) Several patients described in earlier years under the acronyms NAME (nevi, atrial myxomas, and ephelides) and LAMB (lentigines, atrial myxomas, and blue nevi) probably had CNC (5, 6). Thus, lentigines, blue nevi, café-au-lait spots, and cutaneous tumours, such as myxomas, fibromas, and others, are major features of the disease (4, 7-10).. The clinical characteristics of CNC have been reviewed and are presented in Box 6.15.1 (2, 9). A definite diagnosis of CNC is given if two or more major ...

John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. At that time he was already a very sick man.. In November 1955 there appeared in The American Medical Associations Archives of Surgery an article emanating from the Laboratory of Surgical Research and Anaesthesiology of Cornell University Medical College. It was entitled "Management of Adrenocortical Insufficiency During Surgery". The article concerned itself with operating, for one reason or another, on people who were deficient in the life-sustaining corticosteroid hormones released by a small gland situated just above the kidneys, a site from which it derived its unimaginative name, the suprarenal or adrenal gland. It listed three cases where the operation had been successful.. So what? You may well ask. Well, just this: The report on Case 3 almost altered the course of American history in the 20th century. Briefly, it told of a 37-year-old man who had had Addisons disease, or adrenocortical insufficiency, for seven ...
Secondary adrenocortical insufficiency is most frequently caused by long-term corticosteroid administration, which leads to a hypothalamic-pituitary suppression and thus, inadequate ACTH production. After discontinuation of treatment, this type of adrenocortical insufficiency is reversible. In addition, neoplasms or inflammatory processes of hypothalamus and pituitary gland will also cause secondary insufficiency. ...

Background: Histiocytic sarcoma (HS) is an aggressive hematological neoplasm that responds poorly to therapy. The molecular etiology and pathology of this disease remain unclear, hampering the development of an effective therapy. Therefore, a need for more, and more realistic, animal models remains. Lymphoproliferative disorders have been reported in mice deficient for the prkar1a gene coding for the regulatory subunit type 1A of protein kinase A (PKA), but nothing is known about the role of type II PKA regulatory subunits in hematologic malignancies.. Methods: Mice deficient for the Prkar1a and Prkar2a alleles were previously reported (Kirschner et al, 2005 και Burton et al, 1997) and were kept on a mixed genetic background (C57BL/129Sv). Mice were crossed to create prkar2a+/- and prkar2a-/-. Mice were phenotyped at the ages of 3-6-9-12-18 months or when they exhibited signs of advanced disease. Tissues were collected for histological and molecular analysis.. Results: Unexpectedly, mice ...

A kind of single-celled fungus known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, brewers yeast has a history of usage dating far back in time. Yeast has been essential to brewing alcohol and baking for thousands of years, with the use of the simple organisms apparent in Egyptian archaeological sites and other ancient ruins. Integral to the process of fermentation, brewers yeast is widely known for its role in the creation of beer, but it has also been valued in recent decades for its health benefits.**. Known as a bitter form of yeast, brewers yeast is abundant in various nutrients, including a number of B-complex vitamins such as B-2 (riboflavin), B-3 (niacin) and B-9 (folic acid), as well as selenium. It is also particularly rich in another mineral, chromium, which is notable for its ability to assist in maintaining ideal blood glucose and lipid levels and optimal energy metabolism. Chromium also has a strong reputation for assisting in healthy weight management efforts. The numerous B-vitamins of ...

Adrenal disease is commonly seen in ferrets over 3 years old and is caused by adrenal gland tumours often associated with the left adrenal gland (60% - 70%). Females appear to be more affected than males (70%). Clinical signs include significant hair loss, muscle wastage, aggression and vulval enlargement in females. Diagnosis can be confirmed by assaying the adrenal sex hormones, oestradiol (E2), 17-Hydroxy-Progesterone (OHP) and cortisol (Ferret Adrenal Profile).. Additional diagnostic information may also be obtained by adding Androstenedione to the above hormones (Ferret Adrenal Profile PLUS). Cortisol alone is not a good diagnostic test for ferret adrenal neoplasia. Often the tumour has differentiated in such a way that cortisol is not its principal product.. ...
Background and purpose: The proteasome subunit α type 6 (PSMA6) is an important proteolytic protein regulating the expression of genes involved in inflammation. Recently, a functional polymorphism rs1048990, located in PSMA6, has been reported with the susceptibility to ischemic stroke (IS) in several ethnic cohorts, but the results were inconsistent. Moreover, it still lacks the data in Asian. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether this polymorphism confers significant risk to IS in a Chinese population.. Methods: A total of 1102 IS cases and 975 healthy controls were analyzed in our study. We genotyped rs1048990 with ligation detection reaction (LDR) method and then performed a meta-analysis.. Results: Significant association between rs1048990 in PSMA6 and ischemic stroke was observed in all comparison models (genotype, p=0.016; allele, p=0.004; CG+GG vs. CC, adjusted p=0.006; GG vs. CG+CC, adjusted p=0.038). Further stratification for stroke subtype, similar differences ...

... disease is not a benign condition, though it is a slowly advancing disorder. Continuous production of sex hormones not only causes the signs we see, but it also causes enlargement of the adrenal glands themselves. Enlarged adrenal glands proceed to a precancerous state, then to a benign cancerous state (adenoma), and eventually to a malignant cancerous state (adenocarcinoma). All ferrets should get frequent veterinary exams to monitor for adrenal gland enlargement, even if there are no outward signs of adrenal disease. Once enlarged, adrenal glands usually require surgical removal. Another item of note - female ferrets can safely live with adrenal disease longer than male ferrets. Male ferrets get a swollen prostate which can block their urethra. This causes a life threatening urinary blockage which requires immediate treatment by a veterinarian. These are the most important reasons why adrenal disease is not an illness to be ignored.. ...

We have not made that decision yet," Melvin said. There were strong indications, though, that the Brewers were preparing to sweeten the deal. Melvin said Tuesday that he had recent contact with principal owner Mark Attanasio, who would have to approve any changes to the offer. Melvin also said that the next move was the teams, and not Sabathias. "I think theyve asked us [to make the next move]," Melvin said. "The ball is probably in our court a little bit." The Brewers also jumped into the market for free-agent closers on Tuesday and met with the Mariners, a potential trade partner, but their only real action on the Sabathia front was to place a call to his agents to ask for a second sit-down. As of 7 p.m. CT, Melvin had not heard back on that request, but he said it would "probably make sense to have a meeting with them" before the Winter Meetings conclude Thursday. "I think its fair to say that its very clear in our minds what needs to happen next," Brewers assistant general manager Gord ...

Renewable energy sources are becoming increasingly important in the beverage and food industries. In the brewing industry, a significant percentage of the used raw materials finishes the process as secondary resource or waste. The research on the anaerobic digestion of brewers yeast has been scarce until recent years. One of the reasons for this is its use as a secondary resource in the food industry and as cattle feed. Additionally, market value of brewers yeast is higher than its energy value. Due to the increase of energy prices, brewers yeast has become of interest as energy substrate despite its difficult degradability in anaerobic conditions ...
B vitamin complex - Brewers yeast contains unusually high amounts of B vitamins. One 28 gram serving of it, for instance, contains 75 percent of our recommended daily intake (RDI) of thiamine (which boosts the immune system and improves our ability to withstand stressful conditions), 84 percent of our RDI of riboflavin (which activates antioxidant enzymes and helps metabolize fats), 47 percent of our RDI of niacin (which helps the body produce sex and stress-related hormones in the adrenal glands), 40 percent of our RDI of vitamin B6 (which synthesizes and breaks down amino acids), 15 percent of our RDI of folate (needed for DNA and RNA synthesis), and five percent of our RDI of vitamin B12 and pantothenic acid, which aid cellular metabolism..

The active brewer yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is responsible for converting fermentable sugars into alcohol and other by-products. The yeast slurry also called the barm is a major component of beer. It is collected directly from the fermenter and usually has the consistency of a thin cream. Once passed through a sieve and pressed, the brewers yeast is then dried by heat. This thermal process will inactivate the yeast enzymes and will cause the yeast to lose its fermentation power.. Brewer yeast being generally very bitter, some manufacturers use an additional process to produce what is called debittered brewer yeast. This process helps remove the water soluble flavour compounds (hops) responsible for the bitter taste.. Available in a powder, flake or in tablets, brewers yeast is generally used as a nutrient supplement. Nutritionists will recommend its use because it is a rich source of B-complex vitamins and minerals including chromium, selenium, zinc, phosphorus and magnesium. It is also a ...

Cushing syndrome (CS) is characterized by increased circulating glucocorticoid concentrations. It is very rare in childhood and adolescence, with the most common cause of CS being iatrogenic, owing to chronic or excessive administration of exogenous glucocorticoids in the form of topical, inhaled, or oral corticosteroids for the treatment of many non-endocrine diseases, including pulmonary, autoimmune, dermatologic, hematologic, and neoplastic disorders.1,2 The overall incidence of CS is approximately 2 to 5 new cases per million people per year and only 10% of these cases occur in children. There is a female-to-male predominance, which decreases with younger age and may even lead to a male-to-female predominance in infants and young toddlers.3,4 ...

Drug treatment may be continued at a dose sufficient to maintain therapeutic effect. Precautions If the drug is given to patients receiving CAP inside the last dose remains the same. Thus the patient should be in a relatively stable state. After about 1-2 weeks the daily dose of oral corticosteroids begin to gradually reduce the scheme, depending on the duration of previous therapy, and the magnitude of the initial dose of corticosteroids. Regular use of inhaled corticosteroids in most cases, to cancel oral corticosteroids (patients needing admission no more than 15 mg of prednisolone can be fully transferred to the inhalation therapy), while in the first months after the transfer of the patient should be closely monitored until his pituitary-yadpochechnikovaya the system does not recover sufficiently to provide adequate response ...
Small nodules are the most common parenchymal changes, present in approximately 75-90% of patients. Although these lesions are predominantly found in the upper and middle lung zones, they can also occur in the lower lung zones. Nodules are primarily seen in peribronchovascular and supleural localisation, less frequently in the interlobular septa. In rare cases of patients with extensive disease, micronodules can appear to be randomly distributed. Even though they are initially individual lesions, they can coalesce over time forming larger entities. Such changes, observed in 15-25% of patients, take appearance of irregular consolidation measuring 1-4 cm. They can have airbronchogram and in solitary cases cavitate - which should raise question of fungal or mycobacterial infection. On periphery of consolidation individual small nodules can be spotted - an image named "galaxy sign". Even though these consolidations are commonly called "alveolar sarcoidosis", in fact they are the result of numerous ...

Brewers Art Green Peppercorn Tripel is a Tripel style beer brewed by The Brewers Art in Baltimore, MD. 4.08 average with 201 ratings, reviews and opinions.
Brewers yeast, also known as Saccharomyces cerevisiae , is commonly used in baking and the fermentation of beer; hence, the common name. Brewers yeast is rich in nutrients like chromium , B vitamins, protein, selenium , potassium , iron , zinc , and magnesium . It is the byproduct of beer brewing and can be grown on hops. Hops are the dried flowers that give beer its bitter taste. The yeast is separated from the beer after fermentation and processed. Aside from hops, the yeast can also be cultivated on other plants, like sugar beets. Brewers yeast, along with its close cousin Saccharomyces boulardii , is considered a probiotic. Probiotics are foods or dietary supplements that contain organisms, like bacteria or yeast, which provide health benefits for humans. Along with brewers yeast, another example of a probiotic is yogurt with live and active bacteria cultures. Bacteria and yeasts naturally live in our bodies, mainly in the digestive tract. Probiotics contain
The Cushing syndrome is a constellation of abnormalities resulting from chronic excess glucocorticoid activity (1). We report a case of the Cushing syndrome caused not by adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) or a glucocorticoid, but by high doses of a progestational agent, 6-alpha methyl-17-alpha acetoxyprogesterone (medroxyprogesterone acetate). In-vitro testing using a pituitary cell line provided additional evidence for the intrinsic glucocorticoid properties of medroxyprogesterone acetate. ...

The Texans will have their sidelined star linebacker available for Sundays game.. The 49ers? That remains to be seen.. Houstons Brian Cushing has cleared the NFLs concussion protocol after he was injured in last weeks 23-20 loss to the Seahawks and will play against the 49ers at Candlestick Park. Cushing, the teams 2011 MVP, is a key part of a defense that ranks first in the league in yards allowed (254.3). He is third among linebackers with eight interceptions since 2009 and ranks 17th in the NFL with 33 tackles this season.. Meanwhile, Niners All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis (groin) is questionable after he was limited in practice this week. Willis didnt play in last weeks 35-11 win over the Rams and was replaced by Michael Wilhoite, who made his first career start in St. Louis and had seven tackles.. Niners cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha (knee) is questionable after he also missed last weeks win against the Rams. Even if Asomugha plays, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Thursday that ...

1. Omeprazole, a substituted benzimidazole, is a potent inhibitor of gastric acid secretion which is currently being evaluated in patients with peptic ulcer and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.. 2. Drugs which possess an imidazole nucleus have previously been shown to inhibit cortisol release from the adrenal cortex, secondary to inhibition of mitochondrial cytochrome P-450 dependent hydroxylation reactions.. 3. In a double-blind placebo-controlled crossover study in healthy male volunteers, omeprazole (60 mg daily for 7 days) did not alter basal cortisol levels. The peak cortisol response to ACTH stimulation was significantly reduced. Cortisol levels 60 min after ACTH were 824 ± 27 nmol/l on omeprazole (mean ± sem), and 929 ± 35 on placebo (P , 0.005).. 4. In vitro, omeprazole caused a concentration-dependent inhibition of ACTH-stimulated cortisol release from isolated bovine adrenal cells (ED50 = 20 μg/ml). This was associated with a decrease in deoxycortisol synthesis. Therefore, unlike some ...
BioAssay record AID 39040 submitted by ChEMBL: Concentration required for 50% inhibition of binding against Angiotensin II receptor in the bovine adrenal cortex tissue.
The adrenal steroid hormones have a central role in maintaining homeostasis, as they have influence on almost every physiological process. Their movement across the cell membrane is still poorly understood, although this is of great interest to basic biology and medicine. Previous studies have suggested transporter(s) may participate in this process. In this study the characteristic features of the previously demonstrated ROAT1-like exchange transport system in bovine adrenal cells were investigated with representative substrates. Corticotrophin (ACTH) stimulated 3H-PAH uptake into bovine adrenocortical cells, which could be inhibited by probenecid. Cortisol, glutarate and PAH in the incubation medium also cis-inhibited 3H-PAH uptake, and preincubation with PAH trans-stimulated 3H-PAH uptake. Preliminary studies on human adrenocortical cells also provided evidence for the existence of a probenecid inhibitable PAH-transporter. These results support the concept of an organic anion/dicarboxylate ...

The cells of the adrenal cortex are of mesodermal origin, in contrast to the neuroectodermal cells of the adrenal medulla. Human embryonic adrenogonadal progenitor cells first appear at around the fourth week of gestation between the urogenital ridge and dorsal mesentery. These progenitor cells give rise to the steroidogenic cells of the gonads and to the adrenal cortex. The adrenal and gonadal cells then separate-the adrenal cells migrate retroperitoneally to the cranial pole of the mesonephros, and the gonadal cells migrate caudally. Between the seventh and eighth weeks of development, sympathetic cells from the neural crest invade the primitive adrenal and become the adrenal medulla. By the end of the eighth week, the rudimentary adrenal has become encapsulated and is associated with the upper pole of the kidney, which at this time is much smaller than the adrenal. ...

E-mail: hornsby{at}uthscsa.edu. http://sageke.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/2004/35/re6 Key Words: adrenal gland steroid DHEA(S) ischemia replicative senescence cell death. Abstract: The most striking age-related change in the human adrenal cortex is the decline in secretion of dehydroepiandrosterone and its sulfate, steroids synthesized by the inner zone of the cortex, the zona reticularis. Because these steroids are of essentially unknown function, the importance of this age-related change is the subject of considerable debate. It is likely that the age-related change in these steroids results from loss of zona reticularis cells or impairment of their function. During aging, cumulative damage to the zona reticularis could occur through ischemia-related infarcts and other causes of cell death. ...
Cholesterol metabolism in normal adrenal cortex cells is acutely regulated by ACTH stimulation, rising appreciably within 3 minutes of treatment and peaking within 10-15 minutes (3). Defects in either PKA or G protein coupling, as seen in mutant mouse adrenal cell sub-lines, block this response by preventing cAMP formation (11). Other signaling pathways playing key roles in adrenal responses to ACTH include lipoxygenase activation (12) and, at least in adrenal fasciculata cells, stimulation mediated by receptors for IGF1, retinoids, and thyroid hormone; several cytokines, conversely, can suppress production of steroid hormones by these cells (13). For the most part, I will focus here on the mechanisms of acute adrenal fasciculata responses to cAMP and its analogs, which are generally shared with testicular and ovarian cells. It is interesting to note, however, that StAR regulation in another adrenal steroidogenic cell type, the glomerulosa cell, responds via alternative pathways involving Ca2+ ...
Naturally occurring primary hypoadrenocorticism is a relatively uncommon condition in both dogs and cats characterized by clinically significant loss of adrenocortical secretory capacity. Primary hypoadrenocorticism is generally a result of immune-mediated adrenocortical destruction with resultant mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid deficiency. In a small proportion of cases there is selective loss of only glucocorticoid secreting capacity. Aetiology. Impaired adrenocortical function may develop as a result of disease of any part of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. However in dogs, hypoadrenocorticism is generally a result of substantial destruction of adrenocortical tissue. Although any destruction of adrenocortical tissue may impair adrenocortical reserve, in non-stressful situations approximately 90% of the adrenal cortex needs to be non-functional before this impairment becomes clinically significant. In most cases the underlying reason for adrenal destruction appears to be ...
MarketResearchReports.Biz presents this most up-to-date research on Adrenocortical Carcinoma (Adrenal Cortex Cancer) - Pipeline Review, H2 2016
The fetal endocrine system is one of the first systems to develop during prenatal development. The fetal adrenal cortex can be identified within four weeks of gestation. The adrenal cortex originates from the thickening of the intermediate mesoderm. At five to six weeks of gestation, the mesonephros differentiates into a tissue known as the gonadal ridge. The gonadal ridge produces the steroidogenic cells for both the gonads and the adrenal cortex. The adrenal medulla is derived from ectodermal cells. Cells that will become adrenal tissue move retroperitoneally to the upper portion of the mesonephros. At seven weeks of gestation, the adrenal cells are joined by sympathetic cells that originate from the neural crest to form the adrenal medulla. At the end of the eighth week, the adrenal glands have been encapsulated and have formed a distinct organ above the developing kidneys. At birth, the adrenal glands weight approximately eight to nine grams (twice that of the adult adrenal glands) and are ...

The adrenal cortex produces two main groups of hormones; the glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids. The release of glucocorticoids is triggered by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. Mineralocorticoids are mediated by signals triggered by the kidney.. When the hypothalamus produces corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH), it stimulates the pituitary gland to release adrenal corticotrophin hormone (ACTH). These hormones, in turn, alert the adrenal glands to produce corticosteroid hormones.. There is a third class of hormone released by the adrenal cortex, known as sex steroids or sex hormones. The adrenal cortex releases small amounts of male and female sex hormones. However, their impact is usually surpassed by the greater amounts of other hormones (such as estrogen and testosterone) released by the ovaries or testes.. ...

Numerous spironolactone bodies have been detected in the zona glomerulosa cells of the adrenal cortex of a 36-year-old spironolactone-treated woman whose non-tumorous right adrenal gland was removed surgically because of primary hyperaldosteronism. Electron microscopy revealed spherical laminated whorls which consisted of a central core composed of an amorphous electron-dense material surrounded by numerous smooth-walled concentric membranes. Continuous with and deriving from the endoplasmic reticulum, they were present in viable cells and were not associated with ultrastructural features indicating cellular injury. Cytoplasmic inclusions similar to spironolactone bodies can be detected in other organs after the administration of various compounds. Thus, they can be regarded as neither specific to spironolactone treatment nor exclusively inducible in the zona glomerulosa of the adrenal cortex.. ...
The molecular bases of chromaffin progenitor specification are still enigmatic. A classic model had postulated a common progenitor cell for sympathetic neurons and neuroendocrine chromaffin cells (the SA progenitor), and a crucial role for glucocorticoids in blocking neuronal and promoting neuroendocrine differentiation [7, 11, 12, 40]. Analysis of the glucocorticoid receptor knockout [15, 41] failed to support this hypothesis: glucocorticoid receptor-deficient mice had normal numbers of adrenal chromaffin cells, which resembled their wild-type counterparts in virtually all structural and chemical aspects.. In our search for alternative cues, we report in this study that adrenal cortical cells (interrenal cells in the chick) express BMP-4 starting at the beginning of cortical cell assembly. At early stages, BMP-4 mRNA is detected in the wall of the dorsal aorta and in adjacent tissues, particularly those extending ventrally and laterally. These regions include the developing adrenal cortical ...
Effect of altered acid-base balance, induced by the intravenous infusion of either hydrochloric acid or sodium bicarbonate, on adrenocortical function in anesthetized dogs was studied. The secretory activity of the adrenal cortex was determined by measuring 17-hydroxycorticosteroids in adrenal venous blood. Adrenocortical stimulation occurred in dogs with a profound decrease in arterial ph and bicarbonate concentration in the presence of a normal arterial CO2 tension (acid infusions) and in dogs with increased arterial CO2 tension and bicarbonate concentration in the presence of a normal arterial ph (bicarbonate infusions). It is concluded that concomitant alterations in both arterial ph and CO2 tension are not required to initiate an adrenocortical response, and it is suggested that a suitable change in either of these factors may act as a pituitary-adrenocortical stimulus.. ...

Cholesterol ester hydrolase (CEH) in adrenocortical cytosol was known to be phosphorylated and activated, in response to ACTH in a cAMPdependent protein kinase mediated process. The purification of CEH from bovine adrenocortical cytosol was attempted. The use of detergents to solubilise the enzyme from lipid-rich aggregates was investigated and sodium cholate was found to be effective. A purification procedure using cholate solubilised enzyme was developed. The detergent interfered in the operation of the ion-exchange columns, and pure enzyme was not obtained. Hydrophobic chromatography was studied but it was found to be unsuitable for the purification of CEH under the conditions investigated. An affinity chromatography technique was developed using columns of glass beads coated non-covalently with cholesterol oleate. Some positive results were obtained but the low capacity of the columns combined with the low concentration of the enzyme in the tissue cytosol prevented further study of the ...
Your adrenal glands are two tiny pyramid-shaped pieces of tissue situated right above each kidney. Their job is to produce and release, when appropriate, certain regulatory hormones and chemical messengers.. Adrenaline is manufactured in the interior of the adrenal gland, called the adrenal medulla. Cortisol, the other chemical from the adrenal gland, is made in the exterior portion of the gland, called the adrenal cortex. The cortex also secretes androgens, estrogens, and progestins. Cortisol, commonly called hydrocortisone, is the most abundant - and one of the most important - of many adrenal cortex hormones. Cortisol helps you handle longer-term stress situations.. In addition to helping you handle stress, these two primary adrenal hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, along with others similarly produced, help control body fluid balance, blood pressure, blood sugar, and other central metabolic functions.. In the heightened nervous state of adrenal burnout, the body overproduces adrenaline, ...

  • The symptoms of Addison disease are due to a deficiency of mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids, and to a less extent due to low androgen levels. (healthhype.com)
  • Very severe symptoms may arise at times of stress when an adrenal crisis occurs. (healthhype.com)
  • See detailed information below for a list of 2907 causes of Bone symptoms , Symptom Checker , including diseases and drug side effect causes. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • This information refers to the general prevalence and incidence of these diseases, not to how likely they are to be the actual cause of Bone symptoms. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • The likelihood of any disease causing a particular symptom does not strongly depend on the overall disease prevalence, but is affected by numerous other factors including other concurrent symptoms, patient details, and so on. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • People can flunk the tests if they are on the cusp, on the other hand, there can be other diseases that have similar symptoms. (medhelp.org)
  • into your practice Written by clinicians renowned in their respective fields, CMDToffers the most current insight into symptoms, signs, epidemiology, and treatment for more than 1,000 diseases and disorders. (ecampus.com)
  • The purpose of this study is to determine whether treatment with etoposide, doxorubicin, cisplatin and mitotane (EDP/M) prolongs survival as compared to streptozotocin and mitotane (Sz/M) in patients with advanced adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) whose disease is not amenable to complete surgical resection.

  • Loss of adrenal androgen does not have significant consequences in males since most of the androgens are produced by the testes. (healthhype.com)
  • Ultimately, disease association with genetic factors has often been defined in terms of human leukocyte antigens (HLA), particularly those for the highly polymorphic class I and class II genes. (springer.com)
  • Many diseases with autoaggressive immune components appear to have predisposing genetic factors. (springer.com)
  • Taken together, these observations indicate that autoimmune diseases have a genetic basis, but that they also have environmental components and that multiple genetic loci are probably critical to disease onset. (springer.com)

  • This information combines possible causes of symptom Restlessness as noted in various sources, with overall disease prevalence or incidence data from other sources. (rightdiagnosis.com)
  • The similarity of the clinical profiles associated with these disorders suggests the influence of a common molecular mechanism for disease onset. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Such a contention is supported by the observation of an increased prevalence of many autoimmune diseases among family members and among ethnic or racial groups (1). (springer.com)
  • Moreover, autoimmune diseases are more often shared among monozygotic twins than among dizygotic twins or nonrelated individuals (1,2). (springer.com)
  • Type 1 diabetes is a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there is a high level of sugar (glucose) in the blood. (stlukes-stl.com)
