Dopaminergic and cholinergic influences on the growth hormone response to growth hormone-releasing hormone in man.

Abstract:

It is well established that compounds that modify dopaminergic and cholinergic activity in man may induce changes in circulating growth hormone (GH). We have, therefore, investigated the effect of a dopamine agonist, bromocriptine, and a dopamine antagonist, domperidone, as well as a muscarinic cholinergic antagonist, pirenzepine, on the GH response to an analogue of GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) in normal male subjects. GHRH(1-29)NH2 induced a rise in serum GH that was augmented by bromocripti...
