Abstract

Objective: To evaluate secretion of plasma neurotensin (NT) which could be involved as a peripheral signal in growth hormone (GH) regulation, NT release was measured during early postnatal life, a period of striking changes in GH secretion. Methods: Blood samples were collected from 19 normal full-term neonates on day 5 and at 3 months of age to evaluate plasma NT concentrations by radioimmunoassay, serum growth hormone (GH) levels using an immunofluorometric assay, and serum insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) values by radioimmunoassay. Results: Five day-old neonates showed significantly higher (p
