    B Weber
    Central Institute of Mental Health, PO Box 122120, 68072, Mannheim, Germany
    Psychoneuroendocrinology 25:765-71. 2000
    ..These findings are best explained as a consequence of an overstimulation of the adrenal glands through pituitary and hypothalamic sites of the HPA-system...
  2. ncbi Major depression and impaired glucose tolerance
    B Weber
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Clinical Institute, Munich, Germany
    Exp Clin Endocrinol Diabetes 108:187-90. 2000
    ..Insulin and glucose responses to the test meal were significantly increased in hypercortisolemic patients compared to controls. Hence, patients with major depression have an impaired insulin sensitivity...
  3. ncbi Pulse-dosing and conventional application of doxepin: effects on psychopathology and hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) system
    M Deuschle
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Clinical Institute, Munich, Germany
    J Clin Psychopharmacol 17:156-60. 1997
    ..02. We conclude that CONV application of DOX is clinically superior compared with PD and that both modes of application have attenuating effects on hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal system activity...
  4. ncbi Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) plasma concentrations are increased in depressed patients
    M Deuschle
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Clinical Institute, Munich, Germany
    Psychoneuroendocrinology 22:493-503. 1997
    ..After treatment only patients in remission had attenuated IGF-I plasma concentrations. We conclude that plasma IGF-I is increased in acutely depressed patients similar to other states of hypercortisolemia...
  5. ncbi Corticosteroid-binding globulin is not decreased in depressed patients
    M Deuschle
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Clinical Institute, Munich, Germany
    Psychoneuroendocrinology 21:645-9. 1996
    ..However, the exaggerated activity of the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenocortical system in healthy and depressed females is associated with an increase in plasma CBG...

    M Deuschle
    Central Institute of Mental Health, J5, Mannheim, Germany
    Neuroendocrinology 68:355-60. 1998
    ..These findings are similar to the effects of aging upon the HPA system. However, the effect of spironolactone treatment was small, suggesting that the HPA system activity in humans is modulated but not regulated by the hippocampal MR...

    M Deuschle
    Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry, Clinical Institute, , Germany

    A Kniest

    M Schredl
