Adrenal insufficiency (AI) requires life-long glucocorticoid replacement. Conventional therapies fail to mimic the endogenous cortisol circadian rhythm. Clock genes are essential components of the molecular machinery controlling an organ's circadian function and are influenced by glucocorticoids.

Abstract

Adrenal insufficiency (AI) requires life-long glucocorticoid replacement. Conventional therapies fail to mimic the endogenous cortisol circadian rhythm. Clock genes are essential components of the molecular machinery controlling an organ's circadian function and are influenced by glucocorticoids. However, clock gene expression has never been investigated in AI patients.
