Measurement of plasma aldosterone and renin concentration, or activity, is useful for selecting antihypertensive agents as well as detecting hyperaldosteronism in hypertensive patients. However, it takes several days to get results when measured by radioimmunoassay and development of more rapid assays has been long expected. We have developed chemiluminescent enzyme immunoassays enabling the simultaneous measurement of both aldosterone and renin concentrations in ten-minutes b...

Purpose: To evaluate safety and efficacy of percutaneous radiofrequency ablation therapy for unilateral aldosterone producing adrenal adenoma in normalising aldosterone secretion.Patients: Eight cases of aldosterone producing adrenal adenoma with following conditions: i) CT detectable adenoma without any risky organs on a puncture route. ii) Intervening adipose tissue between target adenoma and adjacent risky organs (pancreas or intestine). iii) Unilater...

Introduction: Aging is associated with the pathogenesis of many endocrinological disorders, especially for functioning adrenocortical disorders. In addition, mitochondria DNA abnormalities have been reported to be correlated with aging through ROS which eventually resulted in cell senescence. We previously reported that cortisol-producing adenomas (CPA) expressed more abundant cell senescent markers including p16 and p21, compared to other hormone-producing adenomas. However, ...

Segmental adrenal venous sampling may give a key to solution about the debate of cosyntropin stimulation or not

Background: Adrenal venous sampling (AVS) is critical to differentiate unilateral primary aldosteronism (PA) subtype. However, there are large discrepancies between institutions in the diagnostic criteria of AVS. Especially, the most major debate is in whether cosyntropin stimulation should be used for localization diagnosis or not. Segmental AVS (S-AVS) is a refinement of central AVS (C-AVS) in which samples are taken from the tributaries of the central adrenal veins allowing...

The pathophysiology of aldosterone-producing adenomas associated with their tumor size: the smaller, the higher expression of CYP11B2

Ono Yoshikiyo , Nakamura Yasuhiro , Maekawa Takashi , Felizola Saulo J A , Morimoto Ryo , Iwakura Yoshitsugu , Kudo Masataka , Seiji Kazumasa , Takase Kei , Gomez-Sanchez Celso E , Ito Sadayoshi , Sasano Hironobu , Satoh Fumitoshi

The pathophysiology of aldosterone-producing adenomas (APA), especially those manifesting clinically overt hyperaldosteronism despite their small size, remains unknown. Therefore, we examined the correlation between tumor size and the status of intratumoral steroidogenic enzymes involved in aldosterone biosynthesis using immunohistochemistry. Forty patients with surgically proven APAs following adrenal venous sampling were retrospectively studied. The tumor area at the maximum...
