Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) in extracts of the anterior lobe of pituitaries, collected at autopsy from 13 boys, 21 girls, 17 men and 26 women, was measured in terms of biological activity (B) in vitro by the Sertoli cell aromatase bioassay, and in terms of immunological activity (I) by a radioimmunoassay. The highest concentration of FSH in the anterior lobe found by bioassay was in young girls, who had a mean value three to seven times higher than that in young and elderly men and women… CONTINUE READING
