  • In the toad and in the dog, adrenalectomy diminishes but does not suppress the diabetogenic effect of the anterior lobe extract, which can be obtained in adrenalectomized dogs, in which the pancreas has been surgically reduced, and which are kept alive by treatment with desoxycorticosterone and salt or even with sodium chloride alone.

  • The experiments of Long show that the adrenocorticotrophic hormone of the hypophysis by releasing corticoadrenal hormones, plays a part in the diabetogenic effect; but my own experiments prove there is a hypophyseal diabetogenic action which takes place when there are no adrenals.
