Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
The increased risk to develop a meningioma has recently been established for patients received the cyproterone acetate. The investigators observed several familial cases of CPA related meningiomas which suggest a strong genetic factor modulating the risk to develop meningiomas in patients who exposed to CPA. The aim of this study is to generate a biobank permitting, in future studies, to identify the genetic locus/loci associated with an increased risk to develop meningiomas after CPA (Androcur®) treatment, using a GWAS approach. Enrollment of patients will occur at hospitals where the patients will be treated and also via social networking sites such as Facebook. There will be 4 groups of subjects. Five hundred patients will be enrolled in each group targeting 2000 patients in total, among which 1000 patients (Groupe 1 and Groupe 2) will participate in the biobank. Six centers in 5 university hospitals of APHP (Pitié-Salpêtrière, Ambroise Paré, Cochin, Lariboisière, Saint-Antoine) will be involved in the study. La duration of enrollment will be 24 months. The participation duration for each subject will be 1 hour. Statistics analysis method: SAS 9.1.3.
: group 1: Exposed to CPA + Meningioma
Meningioma diagnosed in women by medical imaging examination and confirmed histologically if surgery is performed. Cyproterone acetate taken for at least 6 months.
: group 2: Exposed to CPA without Meningioma
Women exposed to Cyproterone acetate without developing any meningioma Absence of meningioma assessed by a normal cerebral MRI . Cyproterone acetate taken for at least 5 years.
: group 3: Not exposed to CPA, Meningioma diagnosed
Meningioma in women not exposed to cyproterone acetate. Meningioma diagnosed by medical imaging examination and confirmed histologically if surgery was necessary. Never exposed to cyproterone acetate.
: group 4: General population
Subjects (women) never diagnosed with meningioma and not exposed to cyproterone acetate.
Procedure: - oral smears
