Sixty adult human pituitary glands taken at autopsy were stained for prolactin using the immunoperoxidase technique, and percentages of prolactin-bearing cells were assessed. There was no difference between the percentages of prolactin cells seen in the adenohypophyses of adult men and nulliparous women; they averaged 16.9%, with an average of from 8.6% to 31.3%.
