In pharmacological doses dopamine (DA) will interact with several endocrine systems and both inhibit (prolactin, thyrotropin) and enhance (renin, angiotensin) hormonal release. In this study we have examined whether DA given to preterm neonates will influence prostaglandin (PG) production. The question is of importance since vasodilatator PGs play a role in postnatal adaptation. We determined the effect of low dose DA infusion on the 24 h urinary PGE2 excretion rate (an index of renal PGE2… CONTINUE READING
