Corticotropin-Releasing Hormone (Corticotropin-Releasing Factor) in Depression CRF immunoreactivity is elevated in the CSF of patients with depression . ACTH responses to exogenous CRH administration are often blunted in depressed patients compared to controls [12, 13]. Cortisol responses may not be similarly reduced, suggesting increased sensitivity of the adrenal cortex in major depression. Several studies have shown that ACTH and other pro-opiomelanocortin-derived peptide responses to CRH in depressives can be augmented by pretreatment with metyrapone, which, by inhibiting cortisol synthesis, reduces cortisol negative feedback to the pituitary and hippocampus, thus implicating increased cortisol as a significant factor influencing the reduced corticotrope response [14, 15].
Lesch et al.  used ipsapirone, an azapirone that acts as a partial agonist at the 5-HT1A receptor, as a challenge in 12 patients with unipolar depression and 12 matched healthy controls. 3 mg/kg) or placebo were given in random order. High basal cortisol levels were present in the patients, and their ACTH/cortisol and hypothermic responses to ipsapirone were attenuated compared to the controls. The impaired HPA axis response in the depressed patients may have been due to a glucocorticoid-induced subsensitivity of post-synaptic 5-HT1A receptors or defective post-receptor signalling pathways.
While low-dose and high-dose dexamethasone suppression tests (DSTs) have been used for the differential diagnosis of Cushing’s disease, a low-dose DST has been used as a marker of HPA axis hyperactivity in mood disorders . m. or midnight, followed by serum cortisol determinations at intervals over the following 24 h. In normal individuals, cortisol remains suppressed to very low levels for the full 24 h. In contrast, up to 70% of patients with major depression, particularly those with melancholic features, show cortisol nonsuppression or early escape from suppression during the 24 h following DEX administration.
