  • Patent number: 10780097
    Abstract: This invention provides new methods for a) identifying Cushing's Syndrome patients at high risk of developing hypokalemia during glucocorticoid receptor modulator (GRM) treatment, and b) for prophylactically treating such patients to prevent, or reduce the severity of, hypokalemia. Patients at such high risk may be identified prior to their developing hypokalemia. Such a patient may be an adult patient with endogenous Cushing's Syndrome having type 2 diabetes mellitus or glucose intolerance to control hyperglycemia secondary to hypercortisolism. Patients may be identified by an above-threshold level of ACTH or cortisol in a patient sample taken post-GRM administration or pre-GRM administration, respectively. Upon identifying such a patient prior to the development of low potassium, the present methods provide for prophylactically treating the patient by administration of one or more hypokalemia treatments concurrently with an increased dose of GRM or with an initial dose of GRM to prevent hypokalemia.
