The subcutaneously injected pitressin (10 pressor units of vasopressin) in four baboons facilitated the release of LH at 30 minutes. As a control, vehicle was injected; however, vehicle had no demonstrable effect on LH release. The possible sites of action of vasopressin for LH release have been discussed.
