Prolactin response to TRH in depression.


Journal Article

We studied the prolactin response to TRH in 53 unmedicated psychiatric inpatients. The prolactin response of females was significantly greater than the response of male subjects. There was no significant difference in the prolactin response to TRH between depressed patients and those with other psychiatric diagnoses. There was no significant relationship between the prolactin response to TRH and the severity of depression, the TSH response to TRH or the resistance to suppression of cortisol secretion by dexamethasone.
