Abstract

Intravenous administration of bombesin (5 ng/kg/min × 2.5 h) significantly reduced growth hormone (GH) response to insulin-induced (0.15 U/kg, i.v.) hypoglycemia in 8 male volunteers without affecting its basal plasma levels. These data, together with the presence of bombesin-like immunoreactivity in the human brain, suggest that - as in experimental animals - this neurogastrointestinal peptide may be of physiological significance in the control of GH secretion also in man.
