The opioid control of LH and FSH release: effects of a met-enkephalin analogue and naloxone.


The effect of long-acting analogue of met-enkephalin (DAMME) and naloxone on gonadotrophin secretion has been investigated in man. In menopausal women DAMME induced a progressive fall in LH to approximately 60% of basal levels at 3 h, which was blocked by naloxone; there was a smaller fall in FSH that did not attain statistical significance.
