Corcept Therapeutics Announces Presentations on Mifepristone for the Treatment of Patients with Hypercortisolism at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists 26th Annual Congress

MENLO PARK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/04/17 -- Corcept Therapeutics Incorporated (NASDAQ: CORT), a pharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of drugs that treat severe metabolic, oncologic and psychiatric disorders by modulating the effects of cortisol, today announced that presentations about hypercortisolism and mifepristone's role in treating that disorder will be presented at the 26th Annual Congress of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) being held at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.

"There is growing awareness that even less severe degrees of hypercortisolism are harmful," said Joseph K. Belanoff, M.D., Corcept's Chief Executive Officer. "As a result, physicians are increasingly screening patients whose metabolic and cardiovascular symptoms have not responded to conventional therapy and finding cases of previously undetected Cushing's syndrome."

In addition to viewing the posters described below, AACE attendees may attend "Evolving Paradigms of Hypercortisolism," a product theater talk by Ty Carroll, M.D. Corcept is a sponsor of the talk.
