129 Puberty Changes the Conadotropin Response to Anloxone Infusion

Abstract

Naloxone, an opioid antagonist, increases LH/FSH blood levels in adults. The absent response in prepuberty may be caused by an insensitive, unstimulated pituitary. Therefore we studied LH/FSH secretion during naloxone infusion before and after LHRH priming. Protocol: three prepubertal boys aged 13.1-14.6 yrs (BA 10.4-12.3), Testosterone (T) 0.4-0.9 nmol/1… (More)
