Studies off the opiate control of prolactin, GH and TSH.

Abstract:

Opiate peptides are known to influence the secretion of several anterior pituitary hormones under basal conditions. Further studies on prolactin, GH and TSH have therefore been performed in normal subjects, under basal and stimulated conditions, using an opiate agonist and antagonist. Sixteen mg naloxone had no effect on the basal release of prolactin or GH, but lowered TSH. An infusion of the met-enkephalin analogue DAMME (1 mg) increased GH, and produced an exaggerated response of both prol...
