CORTICOTROPIN

Written by

Corticotropin is the British Pharmacopoeia name for the adrenocorticotrophic hormone of the PITUITARY GLAND, also known as ACTH. It is so-called because it stimulates the functions of the cortex of the suprarenal glands. This results, among other things, in an increased output of cortisone.
