During the neonatal period, adrenal steroidogenic function was assessed by determining the peripheral levels of eight steroids by radioimmunoassay with the use of specific antisera. Serum concentrations of cortisol and cortisone in the umbilical artery were 92.2 +/- 13.3 ng/ml (m +/- SE) and 78.0 +/- 11.1 ng/ml, respectively, and these levels decreased to 37.4 +/- 8.2 and 47.9 +/- 14.7 ng/ml on the first day after birth. Serum concentrations of progesterone, 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone, total… CONTINUE READING
