Effect of prostaglandin F2 alpha on adrenal-produced steroid hormones in cows. Academic Article uri icon


  • Ovariectomized, nonlactating cows were treated with IM injections of either physiologic saline solution or prostaglandin F2 alpha. Plasma concentrations of cortisol increased significantly by 30 to 60 minutes after injection of prostaglandin F2 alpha, but there were no significant increases in plasma concentrations of estradiol, progesterone, or testosterone. After saline solution treatment, there were no increases in any of the hormones measured.
