Abuse of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone: Studies in Two Different Dog Models
In conclusion, these studies show that a single administration of rhGH can abrogate the cGH response ensuing SSIW or acute stimulation by a GHRP, and the inhibitory effect of rh GH on the c GH response to GHRH is shown.
Orexigenic effects of a growth hormone secretagogue and nitric oxide in aged rats and dogs: correlation with the hypothalamic expression of some neuropeptidergic/receptorial effectors mediating food
The results obtained strengthen the proposition that, in the hypothalamus of old rats, anti-anorexigenic compensatory mechanisms are operative, aimed at maintaining a "normal" feeding pattern.
