Die Regulation der Ovarfunktion

  • Freimut A. Leidenberger

Zusammenfassung

Dieses Kapitel soll die Grundprinzipien der Ovarregulation aufzeigen, um die Pathophysiologie des Ovars und neuere Therapieansätze verständlich zu machen. Ansatzweise soll auch wissenschaftliches Neuland erwähnt werden, dessen Bewertung derzeit noch nicht möglich ist, z.B. die Rolle der Innervation des Ovars und der inzwischen zahlreichen, im Ovar aufgefundenen protein- und peptidartigen Stoffe, denen man eine lokale parakrine Wirkung unterstellt (s. Kap. 5.4.8).
