Abstract

The effects of (+)- and (-)-sulpiride on anterior pituitary hormone secretion (LH, FSH, PL, hGH, TSH) have been studied in five normal men. Both (+)- and (-)-sulpiride increase PL and TSH secretion and decrease LH and FSH secretion, whereas they do not seem to affect hGH secretion. These results are discussed in view of the different action of (+)- and (-)-sulpiride on DA receptors in the forebrain with respect to DA receptors involved in the control of anterior pituitary secretion.
