Abstract: Introduced by C. H. Li)Huggins and Russell( 1 ) were the first to point out that there is greater prostatic atrophy following hypophysectomy than following gonadectomy in the dog. Other workers ( 2.3 ) have reported that hypophysectomized male rats showed less prostatic response to androgen than did animals that had undergone gonadectomy alone. JIoreover. several investigators (2,(4)(5)(6)(7)(8) have concluded that administration of various pituitary factors enhances the response of the ventral prostate and ot… Show more

“…Several studies (reviewed by Bartke, Hafiez, Bex & Dalterio, 1978) indicate that GH may be of physiological importance during puberty in the male. There is evidence that GH and/or prolactin can act synergistically with gonadal steroids in promoting the growth and maintaining the structure of accessory reproductive organs in rats (Chase, Geschwind & Bern, 1957).…”

“…We do not know the reasons for this discrepancy: our blank values ranged only from 0 to 5 % of the total testosterone measured, but differences in environmental conditions or the time of sample collection may be at least partly responsible. Daily rhythms (Kinson & Liu, 1973a;Hostetter & Piacsek, 1977) and seasonal variations (Kinson & Liu, 1973b) (Segaloff, Steelman & Flores, 1956;Chase, Geschwind & Bern, 1957; Von BerswordtWallrabe, Steinbech, Halm & Elger, 1969) and the uptake of zinc into the dorsolateral prostate (Moger & Geschwind, 1972). Prolactin may also enhance testosterone secretion from the testes as suggested by studies of Hafiez, Lloyd & Bartke (1972) and Johnson (1974 …”

“…Growth hormone (GH) was significantly higher in patients with metastatic cancer rather than localized disease (British Prostate Study Group 1979). Although this finding could be significant because GH functions in normal prostatic growth (Chase et al 1957), it may just reflect altered metabolism of GH secondary to hepatic metastases.…”
