Effect of oestradiol treatment on 5-HT and dopamine-mediated neuroendocrine responses.
We assessed the effect of oestradiol treatment in women on the endocrine responses to the 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) precursor, L-tryptophan (LTP) (5 g i.v.) and the dopamine agonist, apomorphine (0.005 mg/kg s.c.). Following oestradiol implant (100 mg s.c.) the prolactin (PRL) response to LTP was significantly enhanced but there was no change in the growth hormone (GH) response to apomorphine. There was, however, a significant correlation between post-implant oestradiol concentrations and po...Expand abstract
