Abstract:

In a study of free 17-hydroxycorticosteroids, measurable levels were consistently found in human parotid fluid. Under the influence of synthetic adrenocortical analogs, altered parotid steroi levels closely paralleled changes evidenced in serum and urine 17-OHCS concentration. These findings suggest that steroid values in parotid fluid can be used as an indicator of adrenocortical status.
