    D.8 Information on Placebo
    E. General Information on the Trial
    E.1 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.1Medical condition(s) being investigated
    Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)
    E.1.1.1Medical condition in easily understood language
    Defective enzyme (CYP21) in adrenal steroidogenesis which results in glucocorticoid depletion

    Insufficiency of the production of cortisol in the adrenal because of enzyme deficiency
    E.1.1.2Therapeutic area Diseases [C] - Hormonal diseases [C19]
    MedDRA Classification
    E.1.2 Medical condition or disease under investigation
    E.1.2Version 14.1
    E.1.2Level LLT
    E.1.2Classification code 10010323
    E.1.2Term Congenital adrenal hyperplasia
    E.1.2System Organ Class 100000004850
    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The conventional glucocorticoid replacement therapy in congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) renders the cortisol levels unphysiological, which may cause symptoms and long-term complications. Glucocorticoid replacement is technically feasible by continuous subcutaneous hydrocortisone infusion (CSHI), and can mimic the normal diurnal cortisol rhythm. This method was recently applied to treat a patient through a critical phase of puberty.

    This is a clinical trial aiming to evaluate CSHI treatment in patients with CAH. The main objective is to determine the effects of CSHI on metabolic parameters (androstendione and 17-hydroxyprogesterone profiles, and testosterone, ACTH, cortisol, and bone markers), and to determine the required glucocorticoid doses.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    Secondary objectives are to determine effects on clinical status, body weight, blood pressure and other metabolic parameters, as well as on subjective health status (AddiQoL, SF36).
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Verified salt-wasting CAH
    Age 18-60
    Written informed consent. If the patient is between 15-16 years old both the patient and the parents will have to give informed consent.
    In case of concomitant endocrine/autoimmune diseases these should be on stable treatment during the study period.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Patients with diabetes mellitus on insulin pump treatment will not be included in this study. Other exclusion criteria are cardiovascular disease, malignant disease and pregnancy, and pharmacological treatment with glucocorticoids or drugs that interfere with cortisol metabolism (antiepileptics, rifampicin, St. Johns wart). The patients should not take grapefruit juice the last two weeks before or during the study period.
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    Androgen levels (in particular androstendione and 17-hydroxyprogesterone profiles) as parameters of adequate suppression of androgen production
    E.5.1.1Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point
    After 2 and 3 months of treatment in each period (arm A and B)
    E.5.2Secondary end point(s)
    The effect of glucocorticoid replacement on
    - Steroid and bone metabolism, i.e ACTH, cortisol, bone markers
    - Cardiovascular risk markers such as fasting glucose/insulin, Hb1Ac, lipid levels, CRP
    - Clinical status (BMI, waist circumference and blood pressure)
    - DXA (body composition, bone mineral density)
    - Subjective health status (SF-36, AddiQoL)
