Acromegaly Understanding

Acromegaly: Overview

Acromegaly is a rare endocrine disorder caused by a benign tumor of pituitary gland that results in over-secretion of growth hormone (GH.) that in turn causes abnormal increase in insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). Most pituitary adenomas are slow growing and benign. Symptoms include body odor, easy fatigue, headache, large feet, excessive height, swelling of the bony areas around a joint, widely spaced teeth, and sleep apnea. In adults, too much of this hormone causes bones, cartilage, body organs, and other tissues to increase in size. Common changes in appearance include enlarged or swollen nose, ears, hands, and feet and jaw. The medical complications include cardiovascular disease like hypertension, cardiomyopathy, and diabetes mellitus etc.

Because acromegaly progresses slowly, early signs may not be obvious for years. Sometimes, people notice the physical changes only by comparing old photos with newer ones. Overall, acromegaly signs and symptoms tend to vary from one person to another and may include any of the following: enlarged hands and feet, enlarged facial features, including the facial bones, lips, nose, and tongue, coarse, oily, thickened skin, excessive sweating, and body odor. Acromegaly is a rare disorder caused by excess levels of growth hormone (GH) in the body. In most patients, excess levels of GH are caused by a benign (noncancerous) tumor in the pituitary gland (pituitary adenoma). Most adenomas form from the excessive growth of a pituitary cell called a somatotrope cell (the pituitary cell that normally secretes GH). In most patients, the disease is sporadic and not due to an inherited genetic mutation.

The disease can be diagnosed by measuring IGF-1 levels in blood the elevated IGF-1 level suggests acromegaly second method is by growth hormone suppression test it is the best method to diagnose acromegaly and lastly imaging by doing MRI to help identify the location and size of a tumor in pituitary gland.

Treatment options depends on the location and size of tumor, the severity of symptoms, and age and overall health of the person. It includes surgery options, medications as well as radiation treatments. The medication options developed for the treatment of acromegaly generally focus on drugs that reduce growth hormone production (somatostatin analogues) somatostatin works against (inhibits) GH production like octreotide (Sandostatin) and lanreotide (Somatuline Depot), drugs that lower hormone levels (dopamine agonists) like cabergoline and bromocriptine (Parlodel) that may help lower levels of GH and IGF-1 and also drugs to block the action of GH (growth hormone antagonist).

Acromegaly- Pipeline Insight, 2024 report outlays comprehensive insights of present scenario and growth prospects across the indication. A detailed picture of the Acromegaly pipeline landscape is provided which includes the disease overview and Acromegaly treatment guidelines. The assessment part of the report embraces, in depth Acromegaly commercial assessment and clinical assessment of the pipeline products under development. In the report, detailed description of the drug is given which includes mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, Acromegaly collaborations, licensing, mergers and acquisition, funding, designations and other product related details.

Acromegaly Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Acromegaly report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Acromegaly Emerging Drugs

Paltusotine: Crinetics Pharmaceuticals Inc.Paltusotine is a first oral, once-daily, selectively targeted somatostatin receptor type 2 (SST2) agonist developed for the treatment of acromegaly. It was designed by the Crinetics to provide a convenient once-daily option for people living with acromegaly. Currently it is in Phase III stage of clinical trial evaluation to treat Acromegaly. The drug maintained the IGF-1 levels in acromegaly patients in both Phase II and in recent Phase III studies.

AZP-3813: Amolyt Pharma AZP-3813 is a potential drug candidate which are somatotropin receptor antagonists. It is identified and optimized through a research collaboration between Amolyt Pharma and Pepti Dream and is being developed as a potential next-generation GHRA therapeutic. Currently the drug is being evaluated in Phase I for the treatmentofAcromegaly.
