IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Immunoassay, Neuroendocrine Hormone, Melanocyte Stimulating

Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample (typically serum) to determine alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH), a neuroendocrine hormone. This hormone is a peptide that may be secreted by the middle lobe of the pituitary gland; it is identical to some residues of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). High levels of MSH are found in patients with abnormal adrenocortical activity (e.g., Addison's disease), producing dispersion of pigment granules and darkening of the skin.
