Osilodrostat is used to treat Cushing's disease in patients who cannot have pituitary surgery, or who had undergone surgery but still have the disease.
Cushing's disease is caused by a tumor in the pituitary gland that releases too much adrenocorticotropin, a hormone that signals the adrenal glands to produce cortisol. Cortisol leads to high blood pressure, diabetes, weakened bones and muscles, easy bruising, and blood clots in the arms and legs. Osilodrostat prevents the overproduction of cortisol.
