The comparison of low and standard dose ACTH and glucagon stimulation tests in the evaluation of hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in healthy adults

Abstract

Evaluation of the HPA axis is still a challenge; due to different sensitivities and stimulation efficiencies of dynamic tests, lack of standard assays for cortisol measurement and lack of data regarding the effects of age and gender on the results of the HPA axis evaluation with different dynamic tests. This study was performed to compare 1 μg ACTH, 250 μg… (More)
