Recent studies have suggested that physiological and behavioral traits may be transgenerationally inherited through the paternal lineage, possibly via non-genomic signals derived from the sperm. To investigate how paternal stress might influence offspring behavioral phenotypes, a model of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis dysregulation was used. Male breeders were administered water supplemented with corticosterone (CORT) for 4 weeks before mating with untreated female mice. Female, but not male, F1 offspring of CORT-treated fathers displayed altered fear extinction at 2 weeks of age...

Cortikosteroids, a hormons of adrenal glands have a influence to almost all organic sistems because of their antiinflamatory and immunosupressive effects. They are used in perinatology to accelerate lungs maturation in expected premature labour. The most frequent used corticosteroids are bethamethason and dexamethason, with useful effects: acceleration of growth of fetal lungs by ripening pneumocites type II and supression of creating secundary septs; by protection of brain from intraventricular haemorrhage and periventricular leucomalation; decreasing rate of rethinopathy and enterocolitis and ductus artheriosus persistens...

Adrenomedullin (ADM) and proadrenomedullin N-terminal 20 peptide (PAMP) are widely distributed in various body tissues and organs, including the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. ADM and PAMP inhibit in vitro release of ACTH from pituitary corticotropes, and findings suggest that this effect may become relevant when an exceedingly high ACTH secretion must be counteracted. ADM directly supresses angiotensin-II- and K+-stimulated aldosterone secretion from ZG cells, acting through calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) type 1 ADM(22-52)-sensitive receptors, the activation of which is likely to impair Ca2+ influx...

Thirteen cases of bronchopulmonary carcinomas without symptoms of hypercorticoidism, hypopotassemic alkalosis, or intolerance to an overdose of glucose are described. Repeated circadian rhythm and the suppression test with small doses of dexamethasone were practiced on each one. In 7 cases the secretion of cortisol was supressed normally with oral administration of dexametahsone. In the other 6 cases the circadian rhythm was lost and it was imposible to reduce the plasma level of cortisol with dexamethasone...
