30 Min ACTH stimulation test as predictor of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical function. Comparison with metyrapone test.

Abstract

In 32 subjects the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) response to metyrapone was found to correlate significantly with the adrenocortical response to exogenous ACTH. This report provides additional evidence suggesting that a 30 min exogenous ACTH stimulation test accurately predicts the integrated responsiveness of the HPA system to various stimuli… (More)
