The assessment of lysozyme activity in mononuclear leukocytes (MNLs) following the in vitro administration of dexamethasone (DEX) provides a measure of peripheral glucocorticoid sensitivity. The goal of the present study was to determine the relationship between the IC(50) of lysozyme activity following such challenge, and the cortisol response to oral… CONTINUE READING
