|Abstract:||PGRF has been synthesized. The invention provides synthetic peptides which are extremely potent in stimulating the release of pituitary GH in mammals and which have the formula: ##STR1## wherein R is OH or NH.sub.2, R.sub.34 is Ser or Ala, R.sub.38 is Arg or Ser, R.sub.40 is Ala or Arg and R.sub.41 is Arg, Arg-Ala, Arg-Ala-Arg, Arg-Ala-Arg-Leu or des-R.sub.41. These peptides or biologically active fragments thereof, or analogs thereof having well-known substitutions and/or additions, as well as nontoxic salts of any of the foregoing, may be administered therapeutically to mammals, including humans, and may be used diagnostically.|
