What inspired you to choose your career path?

My career path was guided by both my interaction with patients and my mentors. The highlight of my medical school training was helping to diagnose a suffering young man with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1), a rare genetic disorder causing multiple (including pituitary) tumors

Please find attached the information about two clinical trials available at WCM. These trials have a novel, selective cortisol receptor blocker for the treatment of ectopic, pituitary, and adrenal Cushing syndrome with overt hypercortisolism (GRACE study). As well as a milder adrenal Cushing SD, where just 1mg Dex test needs to be abnormal (GRADIENT study).

These are phase 3 trials. Also, we have the extension phase for GRACE and are working on getting to our site the extension for GRADIENT study. This will permit patients to utilize the drug beyond the clinical trial, till it becomes available in the market.
