Other Hormones

  • Philip L. Ballard
Part of the Monographs on Endocrinology book series (ENDOCRINOLOGY, volume 28)


In addition to the three classes of hormones already discussed, effects of various other hormones in fetal lung have been reported. In general, the action of these hormones is not.well characterized and in some cases conflicting results have been obtained. There is also relatively little information regarding possible physiologic roles. This chapter summarizes information on six hormones which have been investigated in recent years.
