In the last two decades,great advance had been reached in the use of hormones, hormone analogues and hormone antagonists not only in the treatment but also in diagnosis of non endocrine diseases. THYROID HORMONES Thyroid hormonesare critical determinants of brain and somatic development in infants and of metabolic activity in adults; they also affect the function of virtually every organ system.It has therapeutic uses in: 1. cardiac remodeling. 2. left ventricular dysfunction. 3. cardiac surgery. 4. Hypercholesterolemia and heart failure. 5. Benign thyroid nodules. 6. human astrocytomas. 7. breast cancer cell proliferation. GnRH GnRH (also called luteinizing hormone releasing hormone or LHRH)used as therapy in many diseases as in: 1.Metastatic prostate cancer. 2. Breast Cancer. 3. Hisutism. 165 4. Fibroid. 5. Endometriosis. GROWTH HORMONE Growth hormone (GH), the most abundant anterior pituitary hormone recently used in : 1.performing enhancing drugs by athletes. 2.Therapy in Osteoporosis. 3.Therapy in short gut syndrome . SOMATOSTATIN Somatostatinis distributed throughout the entire body. SST analogues are present in short term and long term formulations.Act through Inhibiting serotonin release, and the secretion of gastrin, VIP, insulin, glucagon, secretin, motilin, and pancreatic polypeptide. Also suppresses decreases splanchnic blood flow.Also has antitumor effects. Diagnostic applications SCINTIGRAPHY AND AUTORADIOGRAPHY 1.Non-Functioning Islet Cell Tumors. 2. Neuroendocrine Tumors. 3.CNS tumors. 4.Adenocarcinomas: GI cancers,hepatocellular carcinomas,breast carcinoma,renal cell carcinomas, prostate malignancies,overian cancer,nasopharyngeal carcinomas, lymphomas, melanomas,thymic tumors,mesenchymal tumorc,mercle cell tumors. 166 5.Granulomatous Disease. 6. Thyroid malignancy. Therabeutic applications 1.CNS: Antipsychotic effect and Retinal disorders and epilepsy. 2. GIT:Treatment of active variceal bleeding and angiodysplasia. Pancreatitis ,post ERCP and post pancreatictomy, Diabetic nephropathy 3. Liver diseases: Schistosomiasis and HCC. 4. Oncology:pituitary tumors, thyroid malignancies, gallbladder malignancies, cancer prostate and cervical tumor 5. polycystic kidney. VASOPRESSIN Vasopressinanalogus and antagonists has variety of therapeutic applications as: 1.Congestive heart failure and cirrhosis. 2. Von Willebrand Disease and Disorders of Coagulation. 3. Variceal Bleeding . 4. Severe gastrointestinal bleeding in Crohn's disease. 5.Hypertention. 6. Hepatorenal Syndrome. 7. Cardiac Arrest. 8. Heart failure. 9.Septic shock and Hemorrhagic Shock. 167 10. Anesthesia-Induced Hypotension. 11. Post cardiotomy/Cardiopulmonary Bypass–Induced Hypotension. 12. Nocturnal Polyurea. 13. Aggressive behavior. 14. Vasopressin in affective disorders. 15. Vasopressin in chronic fatigue syndrome. 16. Autism spectrum disorders. 17. Renal malignancies. 18. Nerve cell growth. PARATHYROID HORMONE Parathyroid hormone(PTH) is one of the two major hormones modulating calcium and phosphate homeostasis.Used in: 1. Treating bone marrow depletion in cancer patients 2.Therapy in Osteoporosis CALCITONIN Calcitonin inhibits osteoclasts and therefore bone resorption in pharmacologic doses.PTH used in: 1.Paget disease therapy. 2. Treatment of pain. 3. Myeloma cells in their osteoclast-like activity. 4. Anoretic effects. 168 5. Osteoporosis. 6. Medullary thyroid cancer. 7. Hypercalcemia. ERYTHROPOITIN Erythropoietin (EPO) is a glycoprotein growth factor that is the primary stimulus to erythropoiesis.It is mainly used in: 1. Anemia of chronic kidney disease. 2.Treatment of anemia in patients with cancer. 3. As hematopoietic growth factors. INSULIN Insulindirectly or indirectly affects the function of virtually every tissue in the body.Its uses out of diabetes are: 1. Intensive insulin therapy during critical illness. 2. Aortic Valve and Coronary Surgery. 3. Alzheimer disease. 4. As enhancing drugs by athletes. 5. Treatment and prevention of hyperkalemia. GLUCOCORTICOIDS Pharmacologic doses of glucocorticoids are used to treat patients with inflammatory, allergic, immunological disorders. A number of factors that influence both the therapeutic and adverse effects of glucocorticoids. Allergic conditions: 169 1. Treatment and prognosis of Churg-Strauss syndrome. 2. Chronic rhinosinusitis. 3. Treatment of atopic dermatitis. 4. Treatment of eosinophilic esophagitis. 5. Anaphylaxis. 6. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. 7. Asthma management. 8. COPD. 9. Hypereosinophilic syndromes. Glucocorticoids in immunological and vascular disorders 1. Dermatomyositis and polymyositis in adult. 2. Wegener's granulomatosis and microscopic polyangiitis. 3.

Autoimmune pancreatitis. 10.Autoimmune hepatitis. 11.SLE. 12.Vasculitis. 13.Myasthenia gravis. 14.Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura . 15.IgA nephropathy. 170 16.Amyloidosis. 17.Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura-hemolytic uremic syndrome in adults. 18.Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. 19.Autoimmune hemolytic anemia. 20.Eales' disease. 21.Minimal change disease in adults. 22.Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis. 23.Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis. Anti inflammatory therapeutic applications 1. Pulmonary sarcoidosis . 2. Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. 3. Acute gout. 4. Acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis. 5. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia. 6. Prevent neurologic complications of bacterial meningitis in children. 7. Carpal tunnel syndrome. 8. Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia. 9. Ankylosing spondylitis. 10.Acute pericarditis. 11.Ulcerative proctitis, proctosigmoiditis, and left-sided (distal) colitis. 12.Treatment of retroperitoneal fibrosis. 13.To prevent restenosis following percutaneous coronary intervention. 14.Treatment of miliary tuberculosis. 15.Hepatic fibrosis. 16.Low back pain. 17.Septic shock. 18.In women at risk for preterm delivery. 19.Cancer pain management. 171 20.Acute pain management in adults with sickle cell disease. 21.Cancer anorexia/cachexia. 22.Brain tumor. 23.Polycystic ovary. 24.Hirsutism .
