Adrenal insufficiency is a rare disease, with a very positive evolution when treated quickly and correctly.

The drugs available today for its treatment, have side effects in the medium and long term. We are a family owned and operated business.

We see our patients on a daily basis, facing several problems due to the lack of the most appropriate medication and treatment: hydrocortisone . This medication is the one that most resembles endogenous cortisol and needs to be replaced daily by patients with Adrenal Insufficiency and Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia.

The problems of these patients often begin in their diagnosis, due to the lack of synthetic acth used as an aid for the early diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency.

Faced with the problems faced by our patients, aiming at the adequate treatment and diagnosis, we went public to enforce all the already published laws covering these conditions.

This medicine has already been approved by Decree no. 7,646 of the Ministry of Health since 12/21/2011. But due to its low production and consequent low selling price, it is not produced in Brazil.

We request your collaboration in this petition, which will be forwarded to ANVISA requesting the inclusion of HIDROCORTISONA and ACTH in resolution RDC n. 28 of 09/05/2008, law that requires the free supply of these essential drugs for the correct diagnosis and early treatment.

Synthetic ACTH

synthetic ACTH is used in the main diagnostic test for primary adrenal insufficiency and congenital adrenal hyperplasia, highlighting the differential diagnosis of rare defects in cortisol deficiency and the non-classic form of congenital adrenal hyperplasia.


Indicated when, Adrenal Insufficiency is not confirmed by the baseline values of the exams.


It is also used to diagnose secondary AI when insulin stimulation testing is not possible, which is contraindicated in various situations.


It is also used to evaluate the treatment of Secondary AI.


The cortrosin test, in addition to assessing the adrenal reserve, identifies defects in the synthesis of 21-hydroxylase, 11-hydroxylase or 3-β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. Baseline values may suggest the enzyme defect.
