There's a lot to it: B"sd an endocrinologist is always interested in sandostatin a long acting brand orf octreotide: is an octapeptide that mimics natural somatostatin pharmacologically, though it is a more potent inhibitor of growth hormone, glucagon, and insulin than the natural hormone". It has a number of other actions and classicaly a medical rx of acromegally. Certainly, glad to discuss in more detail.
