Neurohypophyseal and pituitary-adrenocortical responses to the alpha 1 agonist methoxamine in humans.

Abstract

To test the hypothesis that the release of neurohypophyseal peptides into plasma in humans is stimulated by a central nervous system (CNS) alpha 1 adrenergic mechanism, we measured the responses of arginine vasopressin (AVP) and oxytocin (OT) to intravenous methoxamine, an alpha 1 agonist which enters the CNS following peripheral administration.
