Abstract The radioactivities of cortisol and cortisone in plasma were determined following simultaneous injection of 14 C-cortisol and 3 H-cortisone. The plasma concentrations of 14 C-cortisol and 3 H-cortisone decreased as a first-order function of time after an initial rapid drop, while there was a prompt appearance of 14 C-cortisone and 3 H-cortisol in plasma, which also decreased as a first-order function. The biologic half-lives of these four isotopic steroids were essentially identical… CONTINUE READING
