1 When tested at different time points, ln(ACTH) at 10:00 to 12:00 h was negatively correlated with plasma cortisol between 08:30 and 12:00 h. Plasma cortisol was highly correlated to ln(salivary cortisol) most of the time points measured, but 30-60 min after intake of cortisone acetate the correlation disappeared.
