Reproducibility of the adrenal androgen response to adrenocorticotropic hormone stimulation

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Eleven healthy, eumenorrheic, nonhirsute women underwent acute adrenal stimulation testing at monthly intervals in order to measure the responses of cortisol (F), DHEA, and androstenedione, to a 60-minute acute stimulation with 1.0 mg ACTH (1-24). When the women were subdivided into either high or low responders to ACTH stimulation (relative to the group median), the relative adrenocortical response within individual subjects was found to be highly constant over time. © 2006 American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
