To characterize further the site of these derangements and their possible causes, eight male drug addicts with symptomatic HIV infection (stage IV C2) underwent the following investigations: repeated baseline determinations of cortisol, adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), interleukin 1 beta (IL-1 beta), IL-6 and interferon alpha (IFN-alpha); and ovine corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) test (100 micrograms IV… CONTINUE READING
