Vrije Universitei t 2001, Amste rdam Introduction Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a multifunctional mediator with pituitary hormone, macrophage-derived cytokine, and catalytic enzyme activities, which appear to be of pivotal importance to the regul ation of the host immune and inflammatory response (1, 2).

GC might exert dual feedback effects at the level of the pituitary gland, inhibiting ACTHsecretion while stimulating MIF secretion. High levelsof MIF may be a crucial factor limiting the immunosuppressive effects of even high dose GC treatment for septic shock or late ARDS (52,53). Anti-MIF therapy in combination with low dose GC may be considered an important treatment option for sepsis. In relative adrenal insufficiency, for which we are still searching for reliable diagnostic tests (54,55), MIF might be the crucial factor in determining which patients will respond to GC therapy.
