To examine the relationship between the priming and releasing actions of LRF on LH secretion, 14 normal cycling women received 4 different rates of LRF infusion (0.005, 0.01, 0.05, and 0.1 microgram/m2.min for 4 h). The releasing action of the infusion was measured as the area under the curve and the priming effect was assessed by the acute LH increment in response to a test pulse of LRF (10 microgram) at the end of infusion. At the lower 2 infusion rates, there were only minor changes in… CONTINUE READING
