  Purpose

Inhaled corticosteroids are largely used in patients with asthma or chronic obstructive lung diseases. The purpose of this study is to determine if the use of inhaled corticosteroids is associated with suppression of endogenous cortisol production, as seen in patients treated with pharmacologic doses of oral or parenteral steroids.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • stimulated serum cortisol levels [ Time Frame: within 30 days of treatment ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: May 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2008
Detailed Description:

The normalcy of the hypothalmic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis of enrolled subjects will be assessed by low dose (1mcg) corticotropin (ACTH)stimulation test. Serum cortisol levels will be measured before , 30 minutes and 60 minutes after 1 mcg ACTH intravenous injection.
