Corticosteroid binding globulin test

Mild nasopharyngeal irritation following the use of beclomethasone aqueous nasal spray has been reported in up to 24% of patients treated, including occasional sneezing attacks (about 4%) occurring immediately following use of the spray. In patients experiencing these symptoms, none had to discontinue treatment. The incidence of transient irritation and sneezing was approximately the same in the group of patients who received placebo in these studies, implying that these complaints may be related to vehicle components of the formulation.

We measured plasma sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG), and total cortisol, and calculated free plasma cortisol in 1 137 subjects attending a hospital outpatient lipid disorders clinic to investigate whether or not these analytes correlated with the degree of insulin resistance and the presence of the metabolic syndrome. In both males and females, plasma SHBG correlated inversely with anthropometric measures and with fasting glucose, insulin, insulin resistance, and triglycerides, and positively with HDL-cholesterol. However, in males with the metabolic syndrome, unlike females, the relationship between SHBG, some anthropometric measures, fasting glucose, insulin, and HDL-cholesterol were lost, which suggests that in males SHBG may not co-cluster with other components of the metabolic syndrome. In males and males with the metabolic syndrome, total plasma cortisol and calculated plasma free cortisol correlated positively with fasting glucose. Corticosteroid-binding globulin correlated inversely with percentage body fat and positively with HDL-cholesterol in males with and without the metabolic syndrome. CBG correlated negatively with age in both sexes. Overall, the results confirm the finding that SHBG is a marker of insulin resistance in males and females and that SHBG is associated with fasting triglycerides in males with the metabolic syndrome. Importantly, SHBG could be considered a stronger component of the metabolic syndrome in females than in males. However, the aetiological role of CBG and cortisol in insulin resistance is uncertain, although in males, cortisol and CBG could be subtly related to the degree of insulin resistance.

Methotrexate is given weekly as an intramuscular injection of 15 to 25 mg. Side effects are rare and include leukopenia and hypersensitivity interstitial pneumonitis. Hepatic fibrosis is the most severe potential sequela of long-term therapy. Patients with concomitant alcohol abuse and/or morbid obesity are more likely to develop hepatic fibrosis and therefore should not be treated with methotrexate. It is prudent to obtain a baseline chest radiograph and to monitor complete blood count, liver function and renal function every two weeks until the patient is receiving oral therapy, and every one to three months thereafter. Before methotrexate therapy is initiated, the risks of treatment and the possible need for a liver biopsy should be discussed with the patient.

This report describes a model of steroid transport in human plasma. The binding affinities of 21 endogenous steroids for both testosterone-binding globulin (TeBG) and corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG) were determined under equilibrium conditions using a solid phase method at physiological pH and temperature. A computer program was used to solve the complex equilibrium interactions between these steroids and TeBG, CBG, and albumin. In this manner, we calculated the plasma distribution of each steroid into TeBG-bound, CBG-bound, albumin-bound, and unbound fractions in normal men, normal women during both the follicular and luteal phases of the ovarian cycle, and women during the third trimester of a normal pregnancy.

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) provides the following list of features that have been reported in people with this condition. Much of the information in the HPO comes from Orphanet , a European rare disease database. If available, the list includes a rough estimate of how common a feature is (its frequency). Frequencies are based on a specific study and may not be representative of all studies. You can use the MedlinePlus Medical Dictionary for definitions of the terms below.
