Nothing to Disclose: MDB Disclosure Not Provided: AAT

Prolactin is a pituitary hormone initially discovered for its role in lactating women. As the most common hormone over-secreted by pituitary adenomas, significant effort has gone into understanding Prolactin’s role as an endocrine hormone. As more information about this hormone and its receptor has been obtained, it has become clear that Prolactin’s role in physiology is much more complex than previously thought. In this seminar, three experts will discuss recent advances in understanding both the causes and the consequences of excess Prolactin and its multiple effects in the human body.
