US NIH Research Program

Part of the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the primary US government agency responsible for biomedical and public health research.

Through its Extramural Research Program, NIH supports scientists working at universities and institutions across the US and in some foreign countries. A small portion of the NIH budget (less than 10%) is dedicated to intramural research conducted on campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

Evaluation of Adults with Endocrine and Metabolic-Related Conditions

Compared with other diseases, external research teams working on primary aldosteronism receive very little funding from NIH, and intramural programs do not include any study solely dedicated to adrenal gland tumors.

However, a clinical trial on the Evaluation of Adults with Endocrine and Metabolic-Related Conditions is currently recruiting at NIH’s headquarters in Bethesda, MD. Most participants will attend a medical visit, and may have tests, surgery, or other procedures to help diagnose or treat their condition.

Eligibility criteria include age and suspicion of endocrine disorder.

To inquire about participation in the study, patients are invited to contact:
