In October 2018, Christiaan F. Mooij pubished a dissertation on Cardiovascular Risk and Steroid Metabolism in Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH).
The dissertation discusses several topics:
- A general introduction on CAH
- It evaluates studies on the cardiovascular and metabolic risk profile of adult CAH patients
- It presents the cardiovascular and metabolic risk profile of paediatric CAH patients
It evaluates the role of steroid precursors accumulating in CAH on glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid metabolism in vitro.
Based on this research it aims to provide clinical recommendations and future research perspectives.
