This stress model is reported to increase plasma adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol levels [29].
Another potential opioid-induced immunosuppression pathway is the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis: the corticotrophin releasing hormone (CRH) stimulates the anterior part of the pituitary gland to produce adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH), which, in turn, activates the adrenal cortex to produce glucocorticoids.
Adrenal Insufficiency (AI) may be caused by destruction or dysfunction of the adrenal gland (primary AI, Addison's disease), deficient pituitary adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) secretion (secondary AI), or deficient hypothalamic secretion of corticotropic releasing hormone (CRH) (tertiary AI).

Treatment with single-agent abiraterone results in deficient glucocorticoid synthesis and consequently leads to a compensatory upregulation of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) with raised levels of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) [5].

In patients without RA an increase in inflammatory cytokine levels, trigger a release of hypothalamic corticotrophin releasing hormone, followed by pituitary production of adrenocorticotrophic hormone, and glucocorticoid secretions by adrenal cortex.
This, in turn, stimulates the pituitary gland to release adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH).
Adenohypophyseal hormones (luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, adrenocorticotrophic hormone, thyroid-stimulating hormone, prolactin, GH were obtained from the cases with ICL lesions and chemiluminescence method was used in evaluation (10).
All patients with adrenal gland mass, with mass other than AG, endocrine disorders which could cause AG hyperplasia, high levels of adrenocorticotrophic hormone, patients with any reason to complicate AG assessment on images, such as the ones with inadequate imaging technique or movement during imaging, and those in which lateral branch of the RAG were not observed clearly due to liver vicinage were excluded from the study.
Elevated aldosterone and cortisol secondary to raised adrenocorticotrophic hormone secreted by the pituitary gland leads to increased water absorption in the kidneys.

After being stimulated, neurons of the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus release corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), which will be transported by hypothalamic-pituitary portal circulation and stimulate pituitary corticotroph cells to cleave proopiomelanocortin (POMC) in adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) [12].
The comparative results of the serum physiological and biochemical indices in balanced and Yang deficiency constitutions showed marked elevation of cAMP/cGMP, I B IL-IB, and thyroid stimulating hormone in Yang deficiency constitution, and significant reduction of adrenocorticotrophic hormone, cGMP, and FT4.
Ghrelin has a role in both endocrine (e.g., the release of prolactin and adrenocorticotrophic hormone) and non-endocrine (e.g., stimulating gastric acid secretion and intestinal motility) functions (2,3).
