      Background Diagnosing Cushing syndrome (CS) can be challenging. The 24-hour urine free cortisol (UFC) measurement is considered gold standard. This is a laborious test, dependent on correct urine collection. Late-night ...
    • Coexistence of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia and Autoimmune Addison's Disease 

      Aslaksen, Sigrid; Methlie, Paal; Vigeland, Magnus Dehli; Jøssang, Dag Eirik; Wolff, Anette Susanne Bøe; Sheng, Ying; Oftedal, Bergithe Eikeland; Skinningsrud, Beate; Undlien, Dag Erik; Selmer, Kaja Kristine; Husebye, Eystein Sverre; Bratland, Eirik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-09-27)
      Background: Underlying causes of adrenal insufficiency include congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) and autoimmune adrenocortical destruction leading to autoimmune Addison's disease (AAD). Here, we report a patient with a ...
    • Continuous Subcutaneous Hydrocortisone Infusion versus Oral Hydrocortisone Replacement for Treatment of Addison’s Disease: A Randomized Clinical Trial 

      Øksnes, Marianne; Björnsdottir, Sigridur; Isaksson, Magnus; Methlie, Paal; Carlsen, Siri; Nilsen, Roy Miodini; Broman, Jan-Erik; Triebner, Kai; Kämpe, Olle; Hulting, Anna-Lena; Bensing, Sophie; Husebye, Eystein Sverre; Løvås, Kristian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
      Context: Conventional glucocorticoid replacement therapy fails to mimic the physiological cortisol rhythm, which may have implications for morbidity and mortality in patients with Addison’s disease. Objective: The objective ...
    • Diagnostic testing of autonomous cortisol secretion in adrenal incidentalomas 

      Ueland, Grethe Åstrøm; Grinde, Thea; Methlie, Paal; Kelp, Oskar; Løvås, Kristian; Husebye, Eystein Sverre (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objective: Autonomous cortisol secretion (ACS) is a condition with ACTH-independent cortisol overproduction from adrenal incidentalomas (AI) or adrenal hyperplasia. The hypercortisolism is often mild, and most patients ...
    • Feminizing adrenal tumor identified by plasma steroid profiling 

      Vogt, Elinor Margrethe Chelsom; Hammerling, Katrin; Sorbye, Halfdan; Heie, Anette; Sulen, André; Ueland, Grethe Åstrøm; Husebye, Eystein Sverre; Methlie, Paal (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Feminizing estrogen-secreting adrenocortical carcinomas (ACCs) are exceedingly rare and carry a poor prognosis. The most common presenting trait is gynecomastia, but enlarged breasts are also a frequent clinical finding ...
    • Functional studies of novel CYP21A2 mutations detected in Norwegian patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia 

      Brønstad, Ingeborg; Breivik, Lars Ertesvåg; Methlie, Paal; Wolff, Anette Susanne Bøe; Bratland, Eirik; Nermoen, Ingrid; Løvås, Kristian; Husebye, Eystein Sverre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014)
      In about 95% of cases, congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is caused by mutations in CYP21A2 gene encoding steroid 21-hydroxylase (21OH). Recently, we have reported four novel CYP21A2 variants in the Norwegian population ...
    • Multisteroid LC-MS/MS assay for glucocorticoids and androgens, and its application in Addison’s disease 

      Methlie, Paal; Hustad, Simon Steinar; Kellmann, Ralph; Almås, Bjørg; Moter-Erichsen, M; Husebye, ES; Løvås, Kristian (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2013)
      Objective: Liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC–MS/MS) offers superior analytical specificity compared with immunoassays, but it is not available in many regions and hospitals due to expensive instrumentation ...
    • Potential Transcriptional Biomarkers to Guide Glucocorticoid Replacement in Autoimmune Addison's Disease 

      Sævik, Åse Bjorvatn; Wolff, Anette Susanne Bøe; Björnsdottir, Sigridur; Simunkova, Katerina; Hynne, Martha Schei; Dolan, David William Peter; Bratland, Eirik; Knappskog, Per M; Methlie, Paal; Carlsen, Siri; Isaksson, Magnus; Bensing, Sophie; Kämpe, Olof; Husebye, Eystein S; Løvås, Kristian; Øksnes, Marianne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background No reliable biomarkers exist to guide glucocorticoid (GC) replacement treatment in autoimmune Addison’s disease (AAD), leading to overtreatment with alarming and persistent side effects or undertreatment, which ...
    • Residual Corticosteroid Production in Autoimmune Addison Disease 

      Sævik, Åse Bjorvatn; Åkerman, Anna-Karin; Methlie, Paal; Quinkler, Marcus; Jørgensen, Anders Palmstrøm; Høybye, Charlotte; Debowska, Aleksandra; Nedrebø, Bjørn Gunnar; Dahle, Anne Lise; Carlsen, Siri; Tomkowicz, Aneta; Sollid, Stina Therese; Nermoen, Ingrid; Grønning, Kaja; Dahlqvist, Per; Grimnes, Guri; Skov, Jakob; Finnes, Trine Elisabeth; Valland, Susanna Fonneland; Wahlberg, Jeanette; Holte, Synnøve Emblem; Simunkova, Katerina; Kämpe, Olle; Husebye, Eystein Sverre; Bensing, Sophie; Øksnes, Marianne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Design: Two-staged, cross-sectional clinical study in 17 centers (Norway, Sweden, and Germany). Residual glucocorticoid (GC) production was defined as quantifiable serum cortisol and 11-deoxycortisol and residual ...
