The effect of development and growth of malignant tumors on pineal melatonin production was studied in two different hormone-dependent tumor systems in female rats. Urinary excretion of 6-sulphatoxymelatonin (aMT6s), the metabolic end product of melatonin, which parallels its production, was determined by radioimmunoassay at fortnightly or monthly intervals over the period of 1 year in female F344 Fischer rats bearing chemically-induced mammary carcinomas and in BDII/Han rats with spontaneous… CONTINUE READING
