Effect of Ghrelin and Thyrotropin-releasing Hormone on Prolactin Secretion in Normal Women
It is known that ghrelin stimulates the secretion of prolactin in women. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of exogenous thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) on ghrelin-induced prolactin release. Ten healthy ...
Blockage of ghrelin-induced prolactin secretion in women by bromocriptine
Objective: To investigate the effect of bromocriptine on ghrelin-induced PRL secretion in women. Design: Longitudinal study. Setting: University hospital. Patient(s): Ten healthy, normally cycling women. Intervention(s): ...
Effect of ovarian hormones on serum adiponectin and resistin concentrations
Objective: To investigate the effect of ovarian hormones on adiponectin and resistin levels in women. Design: Experimental study. Setting: University hospital. Patient(s): Thirteen normally cycling women (7 in group I and ...
Effect of ghrelin and metoclopramide on prolactin secretion in normal women
Background: Administration of ghrelin to women stimulates the secretion of PRL but the mechanism is not known. Aim: The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of the dopamine receptor blocker, metoclopramide, on ...
Growth hormone and prolactin response to ghrelin during the normal menstrual cycle
Objective It has been suggested that exogenous oestradiol augments ghrelin-induced growth hormone (GH) secretion in postmenopausal women. Whether endogenous oestrogens exert a similar effect during the normal menstrual ...
The effect of estrogens on plasma ghrelin concentrations in women
Background: Data regarding the possible effects of estrogen on ghrelin secretion in humans are limited and contradictory. Aim: To investigate the effect of estradiol (E2) on ghrelin levels in normal pre- and post-menopausal ...
