Cushing Syndrome Understanding

Cushing Syndrome: Overview

Cushing syndrome is caused by prolonged exposure to high circulating levels of cortisol. The most common cause of cushingoid features is iatrogenic corticosteroid use, while some herbal preparations can also increase circulating corticosteroid levels leading to Cushing syndrome. Cushing syndrome can be interchangeably called hypercortisolism. ACTH-dependent cortisol excess due to a pituitary adenoma is called Cushing disease, and it is responsible for 80% of endogenous Cushing syndrome. There are two main etiologies of Cushing syndrome: endogenous hypercortisolism and exogenous hypercortisolism. Exogenous hypercortisolism, the most common cause of Cushing syndrome, is mostly iatrogenic and results from the prolonged use of glucocorticoids. Endogenous Cushing syndrome results from excessive production of cortisol by adrenal glands and can be ACTH-dependent and ACTH-independent. The evaluation of suspected Cushing’s syndrome can include the demonstration of endogenous hypercortisolism with the late-night salivary cortisol or a 24-hour urine free cortisol. The best therapy for iatrogenic Cushing syndrome is to taper exogenous steroids. Chronic exposure to steroids can suppress the adrenals functioning and it can take several months for normal adrenal functioning to recover.

Cushing Syndrome Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Cushing Syndrome 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.

Cushing Syndrome Emerging Drugs

Relacorilant: Corcept Therapeutics

Relacorilant is a non-steroidal, selective modulator of the glucocorticoid receptor, the receptor for cortisol which is activated when cortisol levels are high. Relacorilant does not bind to the body's other hormone receptors. Corcept is studying relacorilant as a potential treatment for a variety of serious disorders, including Cushing’s syndrome and advanced adrenal, ovarian and pancreatic cancer. Relacorilant is proprietary to Corcept and is protected by composition of matter and method of use patents. Relacorilant has received orphan drug designation in the United States for the treatment of Cushing’s syndrome and pancreatic cancer. A Phase III Study evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Relacorilant in Patients With Endogenous Cushing Syndrome is currently ongoing.

SPI-62: Sparrow Pharmaceuticals

SPI-62 is an oral, small molecule, highly potent and selective new chemical entity HSD-1 inhibitor. It is in development to treat conditions of cortisol excess including endogenous Cushing’s syndrome (Cushing’s) and autonomous cortisol secretion (ACS). In five clinical trials, SPI-62 demonstrated potent targeting of HSD-1 in the brain and liver, and significant lowering of cortisol levels in the liver. These studies also showed a favorable safety and tolerability profile, as well as improvement in glucose, HbA1c, cholesterol, and triglycerides. It is currently being evaluated in Phase II stage of development for the treatment of Cushing syndrome.
