a growth hormone produced by the anterior pituitary gland; stimulates the adrenal cortex.
AdrenoCorticoTrophic Hormone / Hormone corticotrope hypophysaire (corticotropine)
(adrenocorticotropic hormone) a substance that can be used to treat infantile spasms.
adrenocorticotropic hormone; controls the release of cortisol (stress hormone) from the adrenal gland
Adrenocorticotropic hormone - a peptide hormone secreted from the anterior pituitary that stimulates secretion of glucocorticoids from the adrenal glands.
A pituitary hormone that stimulates the adrenal cortex.
Abreviation for adrenocorticotropic hormone. It activates cortisol production.
Also known as adrenocorticotropic hormone. Hormone produced by the pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal cortex to produce steroid hormones.
adrenal corticotrophic hormone; a pituitary hormone that stimulates the outer portion of the adrenal glands to secrete various hormones including cortisol, DHEA and androstenedione
Acronym for Adrenocorticotrophic Hormone. Produced in the pituitary gland, it stimulates the outer layer of the adrenal glands to produce cortisol and androgen hormones. Levels of ACTH increase in response to stress, emotion, injury, and infection.
adrenocorticotrophic hormone is produced in the anterior pituitary gland and is released in response to CRH (corticotrophic releasing hormone) from the hypothalamus. ACTH controls cortisol production and release from the adrenal gland (cortex). (See any Physiology textbook e.g. Schmidt and Thews 1989).
A protein hormone produced by the pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal gland to produce hormones.
Adreno-cortico-trophic hormone. The natural hormone ("steroid") secreted in the body.
Adrenocorticotropin hormone. This hormone is produced by the pituitary and sends a message to the adrenal glands to increase or decrease their production of cortisol.
A hormone produced by the pituitary gland to stimulate the adrenal glands. Excessive levels may lead to fertility problems.
Adrenocorticotropic hormone, produced by the pituitary gland; stimulates the adrenal gland to produce cortisol and androgens.
Adrenochoricotropin hormone is released during stress by the pituitary gland
Adrenal Corticotropic Hormone
adrenocorticotrophic hormone, released by anterior portion of pituitary. It stimulates release of cortisol and other hormones by the adrenal gland. Early in MSH deficiency, high levels of ACTH compensate for loss of MSH regulatory control. ACTH often is dysregulated in the face of MSH deficiency; measure simultaneously with cortisol
Adrenocorticotropic hormone, a pituitary homone that stimulates the cortex of the adrenal glands to produce hormones.
Hormone produced by the pituitary gland. It stimulates adrenal glands to secrete the hormones they produce, including cortisone and cortisol.
Abbreviation for adrenocorticotrophic hormone; used for short term treatment of an acute exacerbation(attack), no value as a long term treatment of MS. - A substance produced by the brain that regulates the production of steroids by the adrenal gland. This material can be produced artificially and is sometimes recommended by physicians to manage flare-ups of multiple sclerosis.
A pituitary hormone that tells the adrenal gland to make cortisol.
Abbreviation for adrenocorticotropic hormone, a hormone released by the pituitary gland that stimulates the adrenal glands to produce glucocorticoid hormones.
Adrenocorticotropic hormone, corticotropin
Hormone produced by the pituitary gland which stimulates the adrenal glands to produce cortisone.
Adrenocorticotropic hormone. Produced by the pituitary gland, which stimulates the adrenal glands to secrete hormones.
