Background: A variety of hormones may be down-regulated in CHF patients. Impaired activity of the GH/IGF-1 axis has been described and is associated with poor clinical status and outcome. Moreover, a decrease in serum T3 is correlated to the severity of the heart disease as assessed by the NYHA classification. Aim of this study was to evaluate a possible correlation between IGF-1 levels and T3 status in a cohort of CHF outpatients.M...

Despite the myocardial prolactin (PRL) binding activity and the known effect to enhance contractility in the isolated rat heart, little information is available concerning the cardiovascular consequences of hyperprolactinemia in humans. To elucidate the effects of chronic hyperprolactinemia on cardiac structure and function, twenty-four patients with isolated PRL-secreting adenoma and twenty-four controls underwent a complete mono- and two-dimensional Doppler echocardiography....
