Table 1 Effect of bromoergrocryptine (BEC) on serum concentrations of progesterone and prolactin in post-partum non-lactating rats treated with estradiol benzoate (EB).

From: Exogenous estradiol enhances apoptosis in regressing post-partum rat corpora lutea possibly mediated by prolactin

  Vehicle EB EB + BEC
Progesterone (ng/ml) 45.9 ± 7.2 (10) 154 ± 13.3 (10) *** 44.6 ± 6.7 (9)
Prolactin (ng/ml) 30.2 ± 4.2 (10) 166 ± 19.2 (10) *** 25.5 ± 6.5 (9)
  1. Values are mean ± SEM for the number of animals in parentheses. *** p < 0.001 compared with groups receiving vehicle or EB + BEC (one-way analysis of variance followed by the Tukey multiple comparison test).
