The acute effects of oral ethanol on the hypothalamic‐pituitary‐adrenal axis in normal human subjects
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the acute effects of oral ethanol on the hypothalamic‐pituitary‐adrenal axis in normal human subjects and, in particular, to examine the effect of background alcohol intake andExpand

Arginine Vasopressin Is Associated with Hypercortisolemia and Suicide Attempts in Depression
Activation of the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis is commonly seen in patients suffering from depression (Charlton and Ferrier 1989). Raised plasma concentrations of cortisol may be presentExpand

Generation of action potentials in a mathematical model of corticotrophs.
Corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) is an important regulator of adrenocorticotropin (ACTH) secretion from pituitary corticotroph cells. The intracellular signaling system that underlies thisExpand

The excretion of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), oestrogens and pregnanediol was measured in weekly urine samples collected for 14–87 weeks (median, 43 weeks) fromExpand

Glycerol prevents loss of immunoreactive follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone from frozen urine.
First morning urine samples were collected from both menstruant and post-menopausal women and stored at -25 degrees C. Immunoreactive FSH disappeared from these samples (t1/2 = 30 days), ultimatelyExpand

Low‐dose growth hormone replacement lowers plasma leptin and fat stores without affecting body mass index in adults with growth hormone deficiency
OBJECTIVE The ob gene product, leptin, is considered to be a marker of adipose tissue mass and a possible homeostatic regulator of body mass. Our objective was to examine the effect of GH replacementExpand

Dynamics of the Regulation of the Hypothalamo–Pituitary–Adrenal (HPA) Axis Determined Using a Nonsurgical Method for Collecting Pituitary Venous Blood from Horses
Since 1985, we have applied our nonsurgical technique for collecting pituitary venous (PitVen) blood from ambulatory horses to investigate the regulation of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)Expand

Reduction in basal afternoon plasma ACTH during early treatment of depression with fluoxetine
Abstract. Rationale: Subjects with depression may exhibit activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, but little is known about the response of basal hormone levels to antidepressantExpand

Prolonged exercise increases peripheral plasma ACTH, CRH, and AVP in male athletes.
We wished to determine whether the increased ACTH during prolonged exercise was associated with changes in peripheral corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) and/or arginine vasopressin (AVP). Six maleExpand
