Hormone regulation of milk secretion

Hormone regulation of milk secretion

Proceedings of the Nutrition Society of Australia 5: 90-95

In this review, the authors discuss the role of hormones in the initiation of lactation, colostrum formation and maintenance and augmentation of lactation, the effects of suckling on hormone release, and the biochemical mechanism of action of prolactin in lactogenesis.
