• effects
  • Treatment with growth hormone-releasing hormone appears to be associated with favorable cognitive effects among both adults with mild cognitive impairment and healthy older adults, according to a randomized clinical trial published Online First by Archives of Neurology . (medicalxpress.com)
  • Growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH), growth hormone and insulinlike growth factor 1 have potent effects on brain function , their levels decrease with advancing age, and they likely play a role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer disease," the authors write as background information in the study.

  • Exogenous pGH administration exerts its effects on growth performance and body composition by stimulating protein deposition and inhibiting lipogenesis in muscle and adipose tissue respectively (Campbell eta1 1988, Walton eta1 1986, 1987). (livestocklibrary.com.au)
  • These authors also found that exogenous pGH administration raised protein deposition rates in the three sexes to the same absolute level and in doing so effectively eliminated the well established effects of animal sex on growth performance and body composition. (livestocklibrary.com.au)
  • However, while the marked anabolic properties of exogenous pGH administration are related to the stimulatory effects of the hormone on protein deposition, there is no published information on the dietary protein requirements of pGH treated pigs or on the interrelationships between pGH administration and dietary protein on protein and lipid metabolism.

  • Treatment
  • Treatment with GHRH also increased insulinlike growth factor 1 levels by 117 percent, which remained within the physiological range, and increased fasting insulin levels within the normal range by 35 percent in adults with MCI but not in healthy adults. (medicalxpress.com)
  • levels
  • Protein deposition and plasma Insulin like growth factor -1 levels were similarly increased by pGH administration to pigs given the four higher protein diets in Experiment 1 but unaffected by pGH in pigs given the two lowest protein diets (83 and 114g/kg). (livestocklibrary.com.au)
