Effects of acute and chronic hypoxia on growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRL) of male rats were studied in a simulated hypobaric chambers at altitudes of 5 km (10.8% O2) and 7 km (7.2% O2), respectively. Acute hypoxia caused decreased plasma GH and increased pituitary GH content; both pituitary and plasma PRL contents at 2 h were decreased and plasma PRL level increased at 24 h. Prolonged exposure of hypoxia (5 km) to 25 days, both pituitary and plasma GH were obviously lower than control and… CONTINUE READING
