Growth hormone release-inhibiting hormone (GHR-IH) was administered to five patients with abnormal pituitary-adrenal function. There was immediate suppression by about 50% of ACTH levels in two patients who had undergone bilateral adrenalectomy because of Cushing's disease; one of them had Nelson's syndrome. Bromocryptine (2-5 mg) suppressed ACTH levels by… (More)

Golden orfes were examined for uptake, distribution, and elimination of radioactivity administered in the form of a 14C-labelled fluorescent whitening agent (FWA) of the bis(triazolyl)stilbenedisulfonic acid type. Results of these studies are given below. Pilot trials using FWA concentrations of 10 and 100 ppb and a population density of 1 fish per liter… (More)
