Development of anti-PRL (prolactin) autoantibodies by homologous PRL in rats: a model for macroprolactinemia.


Macroprolactinemia is hyperprolactinemia in humans mainly due to anti-PRL (prolactin) autoantibodies and is a pitfall for the differential diagnosis of hyperprolactinemia. Despite its high prevalence, the pathogenesis remains unclear. In this study, we examined whether anti-PRL autoantibodies develop via immunization with homologous rat pituitary PRL in… (More)
