Corticotropin

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Corticotropin is a polypeptide hormone, also known as adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), synthesized and stored in the anterior pituitary gland. Large amounts of corticotropin are released in response to any form of stress. Corticotropin stimulates secretion of adrenal cortical hormones (mainly glucocorticoids) from the adrenal gland. It is used to test adrenal function.
