Abstract

Variations in PRL secretion were observed during chronic hepatic disorders. The aim of our study was to evaluate the behaviour of PRL in patients affected by hepatic cirrhosis. 6 patients (4 males and 2 females) were studied and matched with a group of healthy controls. In all subjects PRL values were evaluated in basal conditions and after TRH stimulation. The results obtained showed higher basal levels of PRL, together with higher and more prolonged TRH responses in patients with hepatopathies than in controls (P <0.01). These abnormalities in PRL secretion during hepatic cirrhosis could be due to alterations of neurotransmitters at central level.
