A radioimmunoassay for ACTH in the rat, which has previously been shown to provide close agreement with bioassay, was used to determine the disappearance rate of ACTH from the plasma of male rats following hypophysectomy under ether anesthesia. The calculated half-life of the immunoreactive ACTH was 5 min.
