Summary of Session II Neuroendocrine Regulation of Growth Hormone Secretion

  • John S. Parks
Part of the Serono Symposia, USA book series (SERONOSYMP)


The presentations on neuroendocrine regulation of growth hormone (GH) secretion raised several new issues of great interest to basic scientists and clinicians. These were: (1) reciprocal rhythms of growth hormone releasing factor (GHRH) and somatostatin (SRIH) secretion; (2) strategies for chronic, therapeutic modulation of GH release; (3) the potential role of galanin; and, (4) new capabilities for the measurement of extremely low concentrations of GH in serum and urine.
