Stimulation of carcinogen-induced mammary tumor growth in rats by adrenalectomy.

Abstract

The effect of adrenalectomy on 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene-induced mammary tumor growth was studied in Sprague-Dawley female rats. Weekly measurements revealed that adrenalectomy significantly increased both mammary tumor size and number and elevated serum prolactin levels as compared to the intact controls.
