We have recently reported oral and parenteral bioactivity for a new GH-releasing peptide, hexarelin. In the present study, we have examined the neuroendocrine mechanism by which hexarelin and GHRP-6, two GH-releasing peptides, mediate their actions. Although previous studies have looked at the role of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) and somatostatin in regulating the action of GHRP-6 in culture and in stressed animals, our study looked at the role of both somatostatin and GHRH in… CONTINUE READING
