Inhibition by somatostatin of the growth hormone, but not corticotropin response to angiotensin II in normal men.

Abstract

The effect of an i.v. infusion of somatostatin (SRIH) (4.1 micrograms/min/180 min) on angiotensin II (ANG II infusion for 60 min of successively increasing doses of 4, 8 and 16 ng/kg/min; each dose for 20 min)-stimulated growth hormone (GH) and corticotropin (ACTH) release was studied in 7 normal men. In addition, 7 additional normal subjects were tested… (More)
