Adrenaline or epinephrine was first extracted in 1901 from adrenal glands of mammals by Takamine. The first synthesis of epinephrine was performed by Friedrich Stolz. This hormone is secreted by the adrenal glands during anger or fear, and it causes increased heart rate, elevated glucose levels in the blood, and aids in the release of fatty acids from adipose tissue. Physicians use this hormone as a stimulant in cardiac arrest, as a vasoconstrictor in shock, as a bronchodilator and antispasmodic in bronchial asthma, and to lower intra-ocular pressure in the treatment of glaucoma.
