Abstract

Anterior pituitary function was investigated in ten healthy subjects by administering a combination of 200 μg thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH), 100 μg gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), 100 μg growth hormone releasing factor (GRF1-44), and 100 μg human corticotropin releasing factor (CRF). The same test protocol was performed in all subjects after pretreatment with 0.25 mg terguride. Five subjects were tested only with TRH and GnRH, five only with CRF, and six only with GRF. There was a prompt increase in all hormones after the administration of the four releasing hormones (RH). Pretreatment with terguride lowered the prolactin (PRL) increase (p
