6 Negative feedback action of cortisol in the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary gland – a basis for diagnosis and therapy. The identification of this system and the availability of CRH, ACTH and cortisol, together with assays of the three substances, enable the clinician to test the integrity of the system. Examples of the clinical uses of these natural hormone substances are the diagnostic tests for Cushing’s disease, including the measurement of urinary free cortisol, and the CRH test followed by ACTH measurement to explore the possibility of, for example, an ectopic ACTH-secreting tumour.

6). Biological Therapeutics Chapter No. 3 Dated: 14/12/2010 At Time: 8:9:26 38 | Biological Therapeutics The adrenal medulla The adrenal medulla synthesises and releases the catecholamines, mainly adrenaline, and, to a lesser extent, noradrenaline. Adrenaline is the hormone of ‘fight or flight’ and noradrenaline is the principal neurotransmitter of the adrenergic division of the autonomic nervous system. The catecholamines Adrenaline and noradrenaline are secreted from the adrenal medulla. 7. Mechanism of action of adrenaline and noradrenaline Adrenaline and noradrenaline bind to G (guanine)-protein-coupled adrenoceptors on the cell membrane.
