  • The hypothesis that, in the ewe, prostaglandin (PG) F2alpha administration on day 3 after ovulation is followed by luteolysis and ovulation was tested using 24 animals. The ewes were treated with a dose of a PGF2alpha analogue (delprostenate, 160 microg) on days 1 (n=8), 3 (n=8) or 5 (n=8) after ovulation, was established by transrectal ultrasonography. Daily scanning and blood sampling were performed to determine ovarian changes and progesterone serum concentrations by radioinmunoassay. The… CONTINUE READING
