Rao, Jagannadha A and Moudgal, NR and Hao, Choh Li (1986) \beta -Endorphin: intranasal administration increases the serum prolactin level in monkey. In: International Journal of Peptide & Protein Research, 28 (5). pp. 546-548.

Human $\beta$-endorphin [61214-51-5] (0.2 mg/kg) was administered by nasal spray to female bonnet monkeys. An increase of serum prolactin [9002-62-4] was obsd. within 30 min and maintained up to 60 min. In the same dose, i.v. injections of the hormone caused a marginal increase of prolactin only after 60 min. Evidently, nasal administration of $\beta$-endorphin is more effective than the i.v. injection.
