Funding for nurses wishing to attend ECE 2015

An educational programme for endocrine nurses has been arranged at ECE 2015 in Dublin. It includes a half-day pre-congress course on Acromegaly on Saturday 16 May and 3 dedicated nurse sessions as part of the ECE Programme on 17 and 18 May. There will also be opportunities for networking during catering breaks and poster presentations. An unrestricted educational grant which can fund up to 55 nurses with a €500 travel grant to attend the Acromegaly course and ECE meeting has been provided by pharmaceutical sponsors; these will be awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please visit the ECE 2015 website for further details.

We described herein a new species in the highly diversified and species-rich genus Atractus on the basis of four specimens from the southeastern slopes of the Ecuadorian Andes. The new species is morphologically similar and apparently closely related to two other allopatric giant congeners (A. gigas and A. touzeti), from which it can be distinguished by their distinct dorsal and ventral coloration, the number of supralabial and infralabial scales, the number of maxillary teeth, and relative width of the head. In addition, we discuss on the ontogenetic trajectories hypotheses and dietary specializations related to evolution...

CONCLUSION: Mortality in acromegaly is normalized with biochemical control and decreased in the last decade with the more frequent use of SAs as adjuvant therapy. Increased life expectancy has been associated with more deaths due to cancer. PMID: 29764907 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Discussion Teeth are specialized anatomic parts of the human body that are developed between the ectoderm and ecomesenchyme in a complex process called odontogenesis. More than 300 genes have been identified that influence odontogenesis. Dental abnormalities can have significance for cosmesis, malocclusion, dental caries and periodontal diseases. It is not uncommon for more than 1 area to be affected. For example, Hutchinson teeth which are caused by congenital syphilis are smaller with wider spacing between the teeth within the arch, and also have a characteristic notching. Learning Point Some common dental problems that...

Publication date: April 2018 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, Volume 32, Issue 2 Author(s): Giampaolo Trivellin, Laura C. Hernández-Ramírez, Jeremy Swan, Constantine A. Stratakis X-linked acrogigantism (X-LAG) is a recently described form of familial or sporadic pituitary gigantism characterized by very early onset GH and IGF-1 excess, accelerated growth velocity, gigantism and/or acromegaloid features. Germline or somatic microduplications of the Xq26.3 chromosomal region, invariably involving the GPR101 gene, constitute the genetic defect leading to X-LAG. G...

ConclusionFGF-21 levels were increased significantly in acromegaly group. Increased FGF-21 levels were significantly and independently associated with the state of acromegaly. Acromegaly may also be a FGF-21 resistance state independent from insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, obesity, hypertension and dyslipidemia.

ConclusionIGF-1 levels may increase to clinically significant levels during cabergoline treatment for PRL-adenoma. We suggest IGF-1 monitoring in all patients treated with dopamine agonists and not only in those presenting symptoms of acromegaly.

Authors: Mazziotti G, Frara S, Giustina A Abstract Neuroendocrinology of bone is a new area of research based on the evidence that pituitary hormones may directly modulate bone remodeling and metabolism. Skeletal fragility associated with high risk of fractures is a common complication of several pituitary diseases such as hypopituitarism, Cushing disease, acromegaly and hyperprolactinemia. As in other forms of secondary osteoporosis, pituitary diseases generally affect bone quality more than bone quantity and fractures may occur even in the presence of normal or low-normal bone mineral density as measured by dual-...
