To further elucidate the site of action of opioids on the pituitary-adrenal axis, we studied the effect of D-Ala2,MePhe4,met-(O)enkephalin-ol (Sandoz, FK 33-824) on plasma ACTH and beta-endorphin immunoreactivity and serum cortisol in 7 normal subjects and 11 patients with Cushing's syndrome (Cushing's disease, n = 7; adrenal adenoma, n = 2; ectopic(More)
