Possible Interaction: Cyproterone and Adrenocorticotropic Hormone

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Cyproteroneacetate , an antiandrogenic and gonadotropin-inhibiting steroid, has a marked ACTH suppressive effect.
In 10 patients with endogenous elevated plasma ACTH, 10 days of treatment with cyproteroneacetate , in addition to the steroid substitution, diminished the morning plasma ACTH levels.
In 25 human volunteers, a single dose of 200 mg cyproteroneacetate impaired their ACTH and 11-deoxycorticosteroid response to 1 g metyrapone.

The results suggest that CPA has a twofold effect leading to adrenocortical insufficiency: i.e., inhibition of cortisol secretion by the adrenals themselves and inhibition of ACTH secretion at the hypothalamo-pituitary level.
European Journal of Pediatrics  •  2004  |  View Paper
The combination of agonist and receptor blocker is attractive particularly when the receptor blocker like cyproterone acetate also suppresses the release of LH, FSH and adrenocorticotrophic hormone.

Elevated ACTH concentrations were suppressed by prednisolone (25%), dexamethasone (2% of the hydrocortisone dose) or by addition of cyproterone acetate (100 mg/m2/day).

ACTH increased significantly unconjugated DT levels during ingestion of CPA , but not in pretreatment.

Treatment with A and A + E2 stimulated, while additional treatment with CPA clearly suppressed adrenocorticotrophin/melanotrophin (ACTH/MSH) cells.

Cyproterone acetate (CA) inhibited 1-24 ACTH (50 ng/l)-stimulated cortisol production by dispersed guinea-pig adrenal cells in a dose-related manner.

It is believed the antiandrogen cyproterone acetate inhibited ACTH synthesis and release and that this was responsible for adrenocortical atrophy.

It is believed that cyproterone acetate inhibited adrenocortical steroidogenesis by interfering with pituitary release of ACTH.

Furthermore, indirect evidence from the mass and morphology of the adrenal suggests that cyproterone acetate may also suppress production or secretion of ACTH by the pituitary gland.
