Research & Publications
While at the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Demidowich was very active in research, particularly in the areas of obesity and endocrine hypertension. He was the Principal Investigator of two protocols and Lead-associate Investigator of two others.
With Dr. Jack Yanovski, he created a randomized, placebo controlled pilot study investigating the use of colchicine to ameliorate obesity-induced inflammation and improve metabolic markers of health. The study completed in July 2018, and the results are in process of being published.
Additionally, under Dr. Constantine Stratakis, Dr. Demidowich studied various clinical aspects of Primary Aldosteronism, including the genetic underpinnings of aldosterone-producing adenomas.
