Acute cholinergic blockade with low dose pirenzepine reduces the insulin and glucose responses to a mixed meal in obese women with the polycystic ovary syndrome.


OBJECTIVES Pirenzepine, a selective muscarinic cholinergic antagonist, reduces plasma insulin and plasma glucose responses to a mixed meal in a dose dependent fashion in normals and in patients with non-insulin dependent diabetes.
