The changes over short and prolonged periods (up to three months) after castration on the proliferative activity of basal and secretory epithelial cells in the rat prostate were studied. Although castration induced widespread apoptosis of the secretory cells, no compensatory hyperplasia of the basal cells in response to this was noted. Instead, observations… CONTINUE READING
