Role of cholinergic muscarinic pathways on the free fatty acid inhibition of GH responses to GHRH in normal men.

Abstract

In order to explore the mechanisms by which free fatty acids (FFA) inhibit GH secretion, we studied the effect of the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor pyridostigmine (120 mg p.o.) on the FFA blockade of GH responses to the administration of GHRH (100 micrograms i.v.) in seven normal subjects. GHRH-induced GH secretion was significantly reduced following… (More)
