Glucocorticoids exert tonic suppression of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) secretion. Hypocortisolism in secondary adrenocortical insufficiency can result in a clinical picture similar to the syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion. On the other hand, in vitro and in vivo results provide evidence for ADH suppression in states of hypercortisolism. To test the hypothesis that ADH suppression is of relevance during glucocorticoid therapy, we investigated the influence of prednisolone on the osmotic stimulation of ADH.

We first review the interactions between 17ß-estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) in synaptic plasticity, and conclude that, while E2 exerts a clear and important role in long-term potentiation of synaptic transmission in hippocampal neurons, the role of P4 is much less clear, and could be accounted...
