Effect of Gonadal Hormones on Adrenocortical Secretion and Its Significance
Alterations of adrenocortical secretion during pregnancy and differences between males and females of various species have been extensively studied for many years and it would be beyond the limitation of this brief survey to attempt to cover this entire field. We will therefore review the highlights of work done in this area especially as it affects our understanding of normal human physiology and alterations that occur with hormone treatment in man. In addition, work from our laboratory will be discussed.
