In this crossover study, we compared the peak responses of cortisol to low-dose (1 microg/1.73 m(2)) and standard-dose (250 microg/1.73 m(2)) adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) stimulation tests in 90 full-term newborns (37 to 42 weeks gestational age, birthweight > 2,500 g, aged 4 to 7 days): 30 with sepsis syndrome, 30 with respiratory distress (RD) and 30 normal infants. Basal cortisol and ACTH were measured in a fasting venous sample. Serum cortisol concentrations were measured 30 minutes… CONTINUE READING
