Abstract

Plasma adrenocortical hormone (ACTH) and cortisol response to four dose levels (25, 50, 100 and 300 micrograms) corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) were studied in 5 healthy men, and the response to 100 micrograms CRF in 12 patients with various disorders of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical function.
