The effect of repeated administration of hexarelin, a growth hormone releasing peptide, and growth hormone releasing hormone on growth hormone responsivity.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: Hexarelin is a synthetic six-amino-acid compound capable of releasing GH in animals and in man. Its mechanism of action is not understood and little is known about the GH response after repeated administration. The aim of this study was to determine the GH response to the administration of two intravenous boluses of hexarelin, growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) or hexarelin with GHRH. DESIGN: Single boluses of hexarelin (1 microgram/kg), GHRH-(1-29)-NH2 (1 microgram/kg) or hex...
