Effect of Steroids Upon Resistance

  • Hans Selye


In a book on “Hormones and Resistance” it would hardly be appropriate to discuss all the antagonistic interactions between steroids. As explained in the Introduction, the reader is referred to our earlier monographs for such topics as the mutual inhibition of gluco- and mineralocorticoids as regards the regulation of inflammation or the interplay between folliculoids and luteoids in the regulation of the menstrual cycle. Here we shall deal primarily with the effects of one steroid upon systemic intoxications with other steroidal compounds. In retrospect it is interesting to speculate however about the possibility that some of the apparently specific antifolliculoid, antitestoid or antimineralocorticoid actions of steroids may be nonspecific consequences of defensive enzyme activation.
