The effect of peripheral catecholamine concentrations on the pituitary-adrenal response to corticotrophin releasing factor in man.

Abstract

To evaluate the effect of changes in plasma catecholamines on the pituitary-adrenal response to ovine corticotrophin releasing factor (CRF) in normal man, the response to CRF alone (10 subjects) was compared responses after infusions of adrenaline (6 subjects), noradrenaline (6 subjects) and after oral administration of the alpha 2 agonist clonidine (10… (More)
