GH is involved in the long-term regulation of peripheral vascular resistance and vascular reactivity. We determined whether GH plays a role in the acute regulation of vascular function in humans. The acute vascular effects of GH were studied in eight healthy subjects according to a double-blind, placebo-controlled design. Forearm blood flow (FBF), vascular resistance, and nitric oxide (NO) production were monitored during a 4-h infusion of GH into the brachial artery at a rate chosen to raise… CONTINUE READING
