Research & Publications

Research Summary

My study of how 100 patients with acromegaly came to diagnosis targeted education on this rare disease to professionals who most likely encounter it. I investigated a long acting somatostatin analog with a novel delivery system. I have contributed to several reviews on acromegaly and hyperprolactinemia and edited chapters on these topics. I have created an acromegaly database, including longitudinal data in over 350 patients, which will improve clinical practice strategies and serve as a resource for clinical investigation and as a model for database construction. I received an investigator initiated award to study long term treatment of acromegaly with somatostatin analogs.
