Interleukins are proteins involved in the immune system and have been related to the endocrine regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis as well as to the secretion of ACTH, prolactin (PRL), GH and, possibly, LH. Like interleukin-6 (IL-6), vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is synthesized in the pituitary gland and stimulates prolactin secretion. The aim of the present study was to address whether Interleukin 6 is involved in the regulation of VIP, as well as other factors involved… CONTINUE READING
