Effect of obesity and feeding on the growth hormone (GH) response to the GH secretagogue L-692,429 in young men

, : Effect of obesity and feeding on the growth hormone (GH) response to the GH secretagogue L-692,429 in young men. Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism 82(4): 1154-1159

A paired, 2-site study examined the effects of L-692,429 (L), a nonpeptide mimetic of growth hormone (GH)-releasing peptide on GH release in 12 healthy obese (part A: age 26.1+or-3.3 years; body mass index (BMI) 35.0+or-3.1 kg/msuperscript 2) and 10 nonobese (part B: age 22.2+or-2.3 years; body mass index (BMI) <=27.0 kg/msuperscript 2) young men.

Clonal growth is a common phenomenon in plants and allows them to persist when sexual life-cycle completion is impeded. Very low levels of recruitment from seed will ultimately result in low levels of genotypic diversity. The situation can be expe...
