Cortical expression of prolactin (PRL), growth hormone (GH) and adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) is not increased in experimental traumatic brain injury.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cerebral cortical expression of the pituitary hormones prolactin (PRL) and growth hormone (GH) have reported in ischemic damage. Both hormones may be involved in vascular tone regulation and angiogenesis, and growth hormone is thought to be neuroprotective while prolactin stimulates astrogliosis. METHODS We examined expression of prolactin… (More)
