:Pharmacology : Octreotide Acetate is the acetate salt of a synthetic long-acting cyclic octapeptide withpharmacologic properties mimicking those of the natural hormone somatostatinOctreotide is a more potent inhibitor of growth hormone, glucagon, and insulin than somatostatin. Similar to somatostatin, this agent also suppresses the luteinizing hormone response to gonadotropin-releasing hormone, decreases splanchnic blood flow, and inhibits the release of serotonin, gastrin, vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), secretin, motilin, pancreatic

polypeptide, and thyroid stimulating hormone
