CONTEXT: Medullary thyroid carcinomas (MTCs) complicated by ectopic Cushing's syndrome have a poor prognosis, partially due to the difficulties to control hypercortisolism by adrenal blocking drugs. Recent reports (including the initial follow-up of this patient) have suggested that tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) may be a therapeutic option due to an antisecretory action on ACTH. However, there is a lack of long-term follow-up studies. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report the case of a 58 year-old man with a MTC-related Cushing's syndrome resistant to a combination of several anticortisolic drugs...

REVIEW
Andrzej Mital
Acquired von Willebrand syndrome is a rare hemorrhagic diathesis, with clinical symptoms similar to those associated with the inherited form von Willebrand disease. This syndrome is characterized by a lack of previous bleeding symptoms, negative familial history, and occurrence in a relatively older age. Most commonly, acquired von Willebrand syndrome develops in the course of other conditions, such as lymphoproliferative, myeloproliferative, cardiovascular and autoimmune disorders; additionally, it can be associated with some non-hematological malignancies and use of certain prescription drugs...

To address targeting and bioavailability issues of peptidic drugs like desmopressin, the encapsulation into nanoparticles (NP) has become standard in pharmaceutics. This study investigated the encapsulation of desmopressin into PLGA NP by the use of pharmaceutically common stabilizers as a precursor to future, optional targeting and bioavailability experiments. Polymer dry weights were measured by freeze drying and thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA). Particle sizes (ranging between 105 and 130 nm, PDI < 0...

Central diabetes insipidus (CDI), characterized by polyuria and polydipsia, is caused by deficiency of arginine vasopressin (AVP), an antidiuretic hormone which acts on V2 receptors in kidney to promote reabsorption of free water. CDI is classified into three subtypes; idiopathic, secondary and familial. A previous study suggests that infundibulo-neurohypophysitis might be an underlying cause of idiopathic CDI. Among secondary CDI, the tumors in the central nervous system such as craniopharyngioma and germ cell tumors are the most frequent causes...

Background: Prognosis of MNE is good when adequate treatment starts in a timely manner. First-line treatment for monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (MNE) includes desmopressin (Grade A/Level 1 recommendation from the ICI). Missing or insufficient response to pharmacological treatment can be caused by incomplete compliance, but might also be associated with differences in bioavailability from the tablet form. This prospective, non-interventional study was designed to compare desmopressin tablets to the newer ,,melt'' formulation, also known as lyophilisate or orally disintegrating tablet (ODT)...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent heat stress and dehydration have recently been shown experimentally to cause chronic kidney disease (CKD). One potential mediator may be vasopressin, acting via the type 2 vasopressin receptor (V2 receptor). We tested the hypothesis that desmopressin accelerates CKD in mice subjected to heat stress and recurrent dehydration. METHODS: Recurrent exposure to heat with limited water availability was performed in male mice over a 5 week period, with one group receiving desmopressin twice daily and the other group received vehicle...

BACKGROUND: Few studies manage patients with isolated monosymptomatic enuresis (MNE) with multidisciplinary evaluation and pre- and long-term post-intervention monitoring. METHODS: This was a prospective study of MNE patients, aged 6-16 years, diagnosed by multidisciplinary assessment. Of the 140 initial applicants (58.6%) with MNE, 82 were included in the study and randomized for therapeutic intervention in three treatment groups, namely: alarm, desmopressin and alarm + desmopressin...

Central diabetes insipidus (CDI) results from a deficiency of arginine vasopressin (AVP) secretion. It is treated by replacement therapy with the synthetic AVP analogue desmopressin. To prevent heart failure in patients with CDI accompanied by cardiac dysfunction, controlling sodium and water intake is essential, using the minimum effective dose of desmopressin.

Perioperative bleeding remains a major complication during and after surgery, resulting in increased morbidity and mortality. The principal causes of non-vascular sources of haemostatic perioperative bleeding are a preexisting undetected bleeding disorder, the nature of the operation itself, or acquired coagulation abnormalities secondary to haemorrhage, haemodilution, or haemostatic factor consumption. In the bleeding patient, standard therapeutic approaches include allogeneic blood product administration, concomitant pharmacologic agents, and increasing application of purified and recombinant haemostatic factors...

Emmanuel J Favaloro
The 'platelet function analyzer' (PFA)-100 was first introduced to us in 1995. Since then, the instrument has appeared in over 50 reviews and almost 1000 publications. Recently, the PFA-100 has been 'upgraded' to the PFA-200, which has transformed the user interface and electronic management, but retained the fundamental mechanics, and essentially provides the same results. The PFA-100/200 has conceivable clinical utility to screen for von Willebrand Disease (VWD) and platelet disorders, and in monitoring desmopressin (DDAVP) therapy in both, and possibly anti-platelet therapy...

Central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) is a rare condition usually caused by rapid sodium correction in hyponatraemia after a severe neurological syndrome. Only few cases have been reported during pregnancy, most of which were reported in patients with hyperemesis. We describe the successful management of the first case of twin pregnancy in a patient who presented with CPM after treatment for premature labour and then review the literature on CPM in pregnancy (aetiology, diagnosis and management). Our patient required emergency delivery to achieve electrolyte and fluid balance...

There is an increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases that warrant antithrombotic therapy. Antithrombotic therapy includes antiplatelet agents and anticoagulation therapy with vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) or non-Vitamin K oral anticoagulants (NOACs). Antithrombotic therapy is associated with increased rates of bleeding. In this review we summarize the evidence and provide strategies for the management of severe bleeding in the setting of antithrombotic therapy. There is limited data on the management of bleeding in the setting of antiplatelet therapy...

Antipsychotic drugs are used to treat psychotic disorders that afflict millions globally and cause tremendous emotional, economic and healthcare burdens. However, the potential of intranasal delivery to improve brain-specific targeting remains unrealized. In this article, we review the mechanisms and methods used for brain targeting via the intranasal (IN) route as well as the potential advantages of improving this type of delivery. We extensively review experimental studies relevant to intranasal delivery of therapeutic agents for the treatment of psychosis and mental illnesses...

OBJECTIVES: To date there are no studies evaluating the utilization of blood products in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) with gastrointestinal (GI) hemorrhage. This study estimated transfusion needs and determined predictors available at the time of admission for patients with ESRD admitted to a university hospital with GI bleeding requiring inpatient endoscopy. METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed on all patients with ESRD who underwent inpatient endoscopy for suspected GI bleeding between 2009 and 2015...

We performed a complex functional study of the effects of prostaglandin synthesis blockage with diclofenac on manifestation of the hydroosmotic effect of vasopressin V2-receptor agonist desmopressin in the kidneys of Wistar rats with normal synthesis of endogenous vasopressin and homozygous Brattleboro rats with hereditary impaired synthesis of neurohypophyseal hormone vasopressin. Blockage of prostaglandin synthesis led to more pronounced increase in urine osmolality in Brattleboro rats than in Wistar rats due to elevation of not only urine but also sodium gradient at the expense of elimination of the inhibitory effect of prostaglandins on sodium reabsorption and membrane permeability for urine...

BACKGROUND: Platelet dysfunction, including that caused by antiplatelet agents, increases the risk of perioperative bleeding. The optimal management of patients with platelet dysfunction undergoing surgery is unclear. OBJECTIVES: To assess whether desmopressin reduces perioperative allogeneic red cell transfusion and bleeding for patients with platelet dysfunction. PATIENTS/METHODS: We searched for randomised controlled trials in The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE, PubMed, Embase, the Transfusion Evidence Library and ISI Web of Science to 7(th) July 2016...
