To study regulation of the secretion of human pituitary GH (hGH) and placental GH (hPGH) in the pregnant woman and human fetus, the GH-releasing factor Sermorelin [GRF-(l–29)-NH2] was administered to pregnant women at term (n = 5), just before elective cesarean section; saline was administered in control studies (n = 5). The effects of GRF-(1–29)-NH2 administration on maternal and fetal serum concentrations of hGH and GRF-(l–29)-NH2 and maternal serum levels of hPGH were evaluated at birth. The mean time span between injection and birth was 20 min (range, 15–25 min). Cord serum hGH concentrations were similar in infants of GRF-(1–29)-NH2-injected mothers and control infants. GRF-(l–29)-NH2 elicited a consistent but small rise in maternal hGH serum concentrations (P = 0.08), whereas hPGH concentrations remained unaltered. Finally, GRF-(l–29)-NH2 concentrations were undetectable in cord serum, but readily detectable in concomitantly obtained maternal serum. In conclusion, these data suggest that hGH secretion in the pregnant woman at term is suppressed at the pituitary level, that GRF does not affect hPGH secretion, and that fetal hGH secretion is independent of circulating maternal GRF, probably because of lack of transplacental GRF passage.

Positional vertigo can be successfully treated by exercises (Vestibular Habituation Training, VHT) in elderly patients as well as in younger ones. Provided the patients have been correctly selected, this type of treatment is the only way for an adequate treatment of such a type of vertigo. Application of VHT has to be recommended also in elderly people, as the results obtained are as favourable as those in younger people. Only a slower evolution is observed, which can be correlated with a more restricted activity pattern in the elderly. [less ▲]

Vestibular habituation training is an exercise treatment for positional vertigo based on the assumption that such a type of vertigo can be cured by habituation effect. The latter is produced by repeating the situation eliciting vertigo. In this way the mechanisms of adaptation and compensation are stimulated, processes of which have been considered "error controlled." Clinical experience with the vestibular habituation training test battery (consisting of 19 maneuvers) showed that in each particular patient only a limited number of responses were positive in various combinations. Selecting the exercises is then a logical consequence. Followup showed a progressive reduction of the positive cases, as well as the number of positive maneuvers. This is in accordance with the development of compensation as it has been observed in experimental conditions and with the decline of progressive responses observed in habituation experiments.
