Abstract:

In studying the functional state of the thyroid and the elimination of i7-ketosteroids in rheumatic patients, we observed certain regularities in various forms of this disease. Since the thyroid function and the secretion of glucoccrticoids by the suprarenal cortex is connected with the function of the anterior hypophyseal lobe which represents the source of the thyrotropic as well as the adrenocorticotropic hormones, we undertook a parallel, simultaneous investigation of the iodine a bsorption by the thyroid and elimination of i7-ketosteroids in the urine.
