The function and size of the rat ventral prostate are stimulated by androgens and inhibited by estrogens. In order to test whether the blood flow in prostate is influenced in a similar fashion prostatic blood flow was measured after administration of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) in rats with and without pretreatment of estradiol-17 beta (E2) and in rats castrated for five days with and without treatment with E2. Prostatic blood flow was measured with the microsphere technique, which… CONTINUE READING
