Acute cardiovascular and hormonal effects of GH and hexarelin, a synthetic GH-releasing peptide, in humans.

Abstract:

:Reduced cardiac mass and performances are present in GH deficiency and are counteracted by rhGH replacement. GH and IGF-I possess specific myocardial receptors and have been reported able to exert an acute inotropic effect. Synthetic GH secretagogues (GHS) possess specific pituitary and hypothalamic but even myocardial receptors. In 7 male volunteers, we studied cardiac performance by radionuclide angiocardiography after iv administration of rhGH or hexarelin (HEX), a peptidyl GHS. The administration of rhGH or HEX increased circulating GH levels to the same extent (AUC: 1594.6+/-88.1 vs 1739.3+/-262.2 microg/l/min for 90 min) while aldosterone and catecholamine levels did not change; HEX, but not rhGH, significantly increased cortisol levels. Left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), mean blood pressure (MBP) and heart rate (HR) were unaffected by rhGH (62.4+/-2.1 vs 62.1+/-2.3%, 90.6+/-3.4 vs 92.0+/-2.5 mm Hg, 62.3+/-1.8 vs 66.7+/-2.7 bpm). HEX increased LVEF (70.7+/-3.0 vs 64.0+/-1.5%, p<0.03) without significant changes in MBP and HR (92.8+/-4.7 vs 92.4+/-3.2 mm Hg, 63.1+/-2.1 vs 67.0+/-2.9 bpm). LVEF significantly raised at 15 min, peaked at 30 min and lasted up to 60 min after HEX. These findings suggest that in man, the acute administration of Hexarelin exerts a short-lasting, positive inotropic effect. This effect seems GH-independent and might be mediated by specific GHS myocardial receptors.
