Hypophysectomy and neurointermediate pituitary lobectomy decrease humoral immune responses to T-independent and T-dependent antigens


In rats, hypophysectomy (HYPOX) or neurointermediate pituitary lobectomy (NIL) reduce humoral and cell-mediated immune responses. However, to our knowledge, the differences in the effects of anterior versus posterior pituitary hormones on the immune responses have not been studied to date. We compared in rats, the effects of sham surgery (SHAM), HYPOX, and… (More)
