Regarding effects of low dose nocturnal prednisolone on Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal axis (HPA), function of HPA axis was tested in subset of patients in CAPRA 1 study in which Corticotrophin releasing hormone (CRH) test was performed and cortisol levels were assessed.
The reasons for the dominant cyclic pattern in plasma cortisol is unclear, suggesting a cycle of the pituitary adrenal axis synchronized to the estrous cycle (Rawlings & Cook, 1991).
Topics addressed include strategies to modulate cellular energetic metabolism during sepsis, immunostimulation and blockade of apoptosis rational therapeutic strategies, modulating neutrophil apoptosis, HMGB1 as a potential therapeutic agent, poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase activation and circulatory shock, inhibiting glycogen synthase kinase 3[sz] in sepsis, ethyl pyruvate as a novel treatment for sepsis, cytoprotective and anti-inflammatory actions of carbon monoxide in organ injury and sepsis models, the hypothalamic pituitary adrenal axis in sepsis, modulating the endocrine response in sepsis, the neuronal strategy for inflammation, beta-blockade in burns, system interactions, and protecting the permeability pore and mitochondrial biogenesis.
In a report "Evaluation of the pituitary adrenal axis function in patients on topical steroid therapy" in JAAD, Dr Kerner and her colleagues reviewed the cortisol responses to ACTH after at least 2 weeks' of administration of topical glucocorticoids and about 40%of patients had abnormal responses1.
