Abstract

We studied the development of the GH response to growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) using two doses of GHRH. The newborns demonstrated higher baseline GH and responses to GHRH than animals of any older age. There was no difference noted between the rise in GH in male and female subjects with 10 mcg/kg vs 1 mcg/kg. Serum cortisol concentrations did not correlate with serum GH concentrations. These developmental patterns of serum GH are similar to those known in the human being.
