0.400 AlteredExpression disease BEFREE We speculate that the response to the desmopressin test observed in patients with Cushing's disease may be due to abnormal expression of V3R or V2R in ACTH-secreting tumors. 8626831 1996
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease

0.400 Biomarker disease BEFREE This case illustrates that ACTH stimulation by desmopressin is not specific for pituitary-dependent Cushing's syndrome as vasopressin receptor subtypes known to interact with desmopressin may also be found in ectopic tumours producing ACTH. 9425403 1997
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease
0.400 AlteredExpression disease BEFREE In conclusion, the DDAVP stimulation test, i.e., determination of plasma ACTH levels after 5 microg DDAVP injection, seems useful for discriminating Cushing's disease from normality, and may serve to facilitate the differentiation between Cushing's disease and ectopic ACTH syndrome. 9466324 1997
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease
0.400 Biomarker disease BEFREE Recently it was shown that patients with pituitary corticotrope adenomas respond to GHS with a dramatic rise in ACTH secretion, and it has been suggested that GHS may provide a diagnostic tool to differentiate Cushing's disease from the ectopic ACTH syndrome. 9437242 1997
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease
0.400 AlteredExpression disease BEFREE Hypertension is a prominent feature of patients with Cushing's disease and ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) syndrome, who have elevated ACTH levels. 11082157 2000
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease

Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease
0.400 Biomarker disease BEFREE Investigations suggested Cushing's disease; there was suppression after high-dose dexamethasone (<20 nmol/liter) and a 950% increase in ACTH after stimulation with CRH. 11788623 2002
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease
0.400 Biomarker disease BEFREE Following desmopressin administration there was an overlap of the percent F and ACTH responses among patients with CD and EAS, and the area under the ROC curve for both these responses was not significantly different than that occurring by chance. 11932296 2002
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease
0.400 Biomarker disease BEFREE Data obtained by gene array and semi-quantitative RT-PCR showed an increase in the expression of Sp3 and CRSP9 (co-regulator of Sp1 transcription factor, subunit 9) in the adrenal adenomas or bilateral macronodular hyperplasias of patients with GIP-dependent Cushing's syndrome; they were, however, also increased in some patients with non-GIP-dependent cortisol-secreting adenomas or with ACTH-dependent Cushing's disease. 16087722 2005
Pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease
0.400 Biomarker disease BEFREE The selective expression of sst(5) receptors in corticotroph adenomas and the preferential inhibition of ACTH release by human corticotroph adenoma cells by SOM230 in vitro, suggest that SOM230 may have potential in the treatment of patients with pituitary-dependent Cushing's disease. 15817922 2005
