Abstract

The data most frequently met with in literary studies on humoral responses of the organism to stress are those that relate to changes in the function of the adrenal cortex which, to a certain extent, may be conditioned also by Selye’s concept of a general adrenal cortex reactivity under stress (33,34). A change in the adrenal weight as such is of course only an indirect indicator of its function (3,31) nor does the ascorbic acid concentration provide a reliable or adequate index of its function (7,21,30). Thus far, a direct follow-up of adrenal cortical steroids in plasma and adrenal tissue has proved to be the most reliable method for studying adrenal cortical activity under stress, and it is generally utilized in practice.
