Effect of a long acting glucagon selective somatostatin analogue on plasma glucose, insulin and glucagon levels in the anaesthetized rat during arginine infusion

Abstract

The effects of somatostatin and a long acting, glucagon selective somatostatin analog (des-Ala1Gly2[His4,5-D-Trp8]-somatostatin), were studied during arginine tolerance tests in normal anaesthetized rats. Arginine infusion in control animals resulted in a rapid increase in plasma insulin and glucagon, and an increase of 15±5 mg/dl in plasma glucose… (More)
