Glucocorticoid (GC) hypersecretion constitutes the major hormonal response to stress. In an effort to investigate the impact of a long-lasting exposure to high GC levels in vivo on cellular longevity, we have studied the lifespan of skin fibroblasts from patients suffering from Cushing's syndrome, who are characterised by chronic endogenous GC excess.(More)
OBJECTIVE Chronic exposure to elevated glucocorticoid (GC) concentrations induces detrimental effects in several tissues. In the skin, GCs provoke intense alterations on various parameters of the physiology of fibroblasts, cumulatively leading to skin atrophy and impaired wound healing. As there are concerns that GCs may generate permanent adverse(More)
