[Preliminary study in female rats of the immunoregulatory effect of estradiol, progesterone and pituitary prolactin on natural killer-like cell mediated cytotoxic activity].

Abstract

A spontaneous non-immune natural killing-like cytotoxic activity is induced in cyclic non mated virgin F/344 females by progesterone + oestradiol or progesterone alone treatment after bilateral ovariectomy. Many indications attribute this cytotoxic response to the absence of the mating stimulated pituitary prolactin release which normally rescues the… (More)
