We proudly announce that our scientists Prof. Stefan R. Bornstein and Cynthia L. Andoniadou have been published in “Nature Reviews of Endocrinology”. They comment on “Novel medications inducing adrenal insufficiency”.
Various commonly used medications in the treatment of chronic diseases or malignancies have been found to induce adrenal insufficiency.
For example CYP3A4 inhibitors, Opioids and immune checkpoints interfere with the HPA axis and impair the adrenal stress response. Their goal is to increase the awareness of clinical doctors in order to prevent these unwanted side effects.
