In Endocrine Reviews, Brandi et al. discuss recent insights into multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. Nölting and colleagues consider prospects for personalized management of pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, and Claahsen-van der Grinten and associates look at new findings bearing on the management of congenital adrenal hyperplasia.

In a paper in Endocrinology, Sellars and colleagues demonstrate in a mouse model a role for FGF23 in defending against fetal hyperphosphatemia induced by maternal phosphate loading. Ng et al. find evidence of a role for fibrocytes in the T3 signaling that is critical for cochlear development, which may be relevant to hereditary deafness syndromes. Sun and associates establish that duox mutant zebrafish may serve as a model for human congenital hypothyroidism.

Writing in JCEM, Thornton and colleagues show that a long-acting prodrug of somatropin given weekly was superior to daily somatropin in treatment-naïve children with growth hormone deficiency. Samson and coauthors find that oral octreotide capsules maintain biochemical control of acromegaly in patients previously treated with injectable somatostatin receptor ligands. And Modan-Moses et al. establish parameters for assessment of linear growth and adult height in female adolescents with anorexia nervosa.

In Journal of the Endocrine Society, Javorsky and colleagues establish new serum cortisol cutoff values for adrenocorticotropic hormone stimulation testing based on newer, specific, cortisol assays. Stone and coauthors report on a case of severe insulin resistance and pseudoacromegaly that they traced to digenic variants in the FGF21 signaling pathway. Lastly, Waqar and associates report on the high frequency of cardiovascular events and associated elevated mortality in patients hospitalized for thyroid storm.
