Increased plasma MHPG in dexamethasone-resistant depressed patients.


Severely depressed patients frequently show inadequate suppression of serum cortisol levels by dexamethasone. In a study of 15 depressed patients, we found a robust correlation between plasma levels of cortisol and 3-methoxy-4-hydroxy-phenylglycol after dexamethasone administration. These results suggest that dexamethasone resistance and adrenergic… (More)
