Morning and night determinations were performed for each hormone. Serum PRL was elevated in males up to the fourth week after the thermal injury. Plasma ACTH increased significantly on the second day postburn and returned gradually to normal on the fifth; serum FSH and LH increased on day… CONTINUE READING
