Human prolactin

Human prolactin

Klinische Wochenschrift 57(1): 1-12

Aspects discussed in this review include the structure, extraction and determination of prolactin; regulation and concn. in serum; stimulation and inhibition; biological activity, in particular effects on mammary growth and function, and on the sexual organs; the pathology and treatment of hyperprolactinaemia.
