Ten patients in each group were given neostigmine 35 micrograms kg-1 when the(More)

A three-treatment, three-treatment period, cross-over(More)

We have raised antibodies to rat growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF) which, when acutely administered to rats, cause a complete inhibition of pulsatile GH release. Using this passive immunization technique, we have evaluated the role of GRF in normal somatic growth. Twenty-two-day-old male Sprague-Dawley rats (61 +/- 2 g, mean +/- SEM) were treated for 16(More)
