The NICHD conducts and supports a variety of clinical research projects related to adrenal gland disorders. Select a link below to learn more about these projects.
Featured NICHD Clinical Trials on Adrenal Gland Disorders
Study of Adrenal Gland Tumors
This study will investigate how adrenal gland tumors develop, why some secrete steroid hormones and others do not, and why some are benign and others are malignant.
Adrenal Hyperplasia Among Young People With PCOS
Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is a group of disorders related to problems with the secretion of certain hormones, which can lead to reproductive and other issues in women. This study will investigate possible connections between adrenal gland steroid hormone secretion and PCOS.
Adrenal Function in Critical Illness
This study will examine the incidence and natural history of adrenal insufficiency in critically ill patients to further define adrenal insufficiency and provide data to develop diagnostic tests.
Defining the Genetic Basis for the Development of Primary Pigmented Nodular Adrenocortical Disease (PPNAD) and the Carney Complex
The causes of primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD) and the Carney complex (CNC) are unknown, but research suggests that these diseases may be inherited. This study will use standard methods of clinical testing for endocrine and nonendocrine diseases and genetic testing to define the genetic basis for PPNAD and/or CNC.
