Endotoxin has been shown to stimulate ACTH and cortisol secretion through an action at the hypothalamic level. However, the nature of hypothalamic neurohormones, corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and especially arginine vasopressin (AVP), involved in that regulation is still controversial. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of an(More)
Changes in corticotropin (ACTH) and glucocorticoid secretion have been described during disturbances of body fluid homeostasis and attributed to alterations in arginine vasopressin (AVP) secretion from magnocellular hypothalamic neurons. In order to further characterize the mechanisms involved in the interactions between body fluid alterations and pituitary(More)
