The urinary excretion rates of free cortisol and cortisone as well as of their 20-dihydroisomers have been studied in normal subjects under different physiological or pharmacological conditions. For the estimation of steroid excretion rates, a fully automated, liquid-chromatographic method was used. In normal subjects, the median steroid excretion rates of free cortisol, cortisone, 20-alpha-dihydrocortisol, 20-beta-dihydrocortisol, 20-alpha-dihydrocortisone and 20-beta-dihydrocortisone were 6.7… CONTINUE READING
