Immunosuppressive activity of bromocriptine on human T lymphocyte function in vitro.


Bromocriptine (BRC), a dopamine type 2 agonist, prevents secretion of pituitary prolactin (PRL). BRC has been shown to impair lymphocyte responsiveness toward antigenic stimulation by decreasing serum PRL levels. Hypoprolactinaemia induced by BRC produces a similar immunosuppressive effect, as observed in hypophysectomized rats, which is restored by the… (More)
