"In the CHIASMA OPTIMAL trial, 75% of the patients randomized to the octreotide
capsules treatment arm completed the 36-week trial on study drug, and 90% of those patients voluntarily elected to continue into the open label extension.
Camurus (STO: CAMX), a commercial stage biopharmaceutical company specialising in long-acting medicines for severe and chronic disorders, announced on Thursday that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted an Investigational New Drug (IND) application to initiate a phase 3 study with CAM2029 once-monthly octreotide
subcutaneous depot for treatment of acromegaly.
Successful inhibition of meningioma cell growth was achieved in-vitro with somatostatin use and was reported more than 30 years ago.6 In order to learn its efficacy in human subjects Johnson and his colleagues conducted a phase II randomized controlled trial to study the efficacy of subcutaneous octreotide
(somatostatin analogue) in recurrent meningioma and haemangiopericytoma.
, which is a synthetic cyclic octapeptide, is a somatostatin analogue.
We herein share a clinically diagnosed intestinal lymphangiectasia case responding well to octreotide
An abdominal radiograph (figure 1), computed tomography (CT) without contrast of the abdomen and pelvis (figure 2), and a wholebody octreotide
scan (figure 3) were ordered.
Historically the treatment of severe, diffuse CHI, unresponsive to diazoxide and octreotide
was subtotal pancreatectomy.
Objective: To compare the efficacy of terlipressin versus octreotide
after endoscopic variceal band ligation (EVL) in prevention of early variceal rebleed.
Patient was started on intravenous octreotide
therapy (5 [micro]g [kg.sup.-1] twice a day).
Somatostatin analogues such as octreotide
have been reported to improve the symptoms of carcinoid syndrome .
This study aimed to evaluate short-term preoperative octreotide
(OCT) use in TSHoma patients and to investigate SSTR2 and SSTR5 expression and observe structural changes in tumor tissue.
