A simultaneous determination was made of 17-OHCS in serum, urine, and parotid fluid, by the Porter-Silber reaction, after the oral administration of prednisolone, triamcinolone, or placebo to 240 normal human subjects. The data clearly demonstrate the homology of serum and parotid fluid 17-OHCS levels through a range of 0.22 micrograms to 57.72 micrograms100 m1. in serum. Urinary excretion of steroids was highest following prednisolone, intermediate in the placebo group, and lowest after triamcinolone dosage. Author
