Investigations of the past twelve years provide much new information concerning the regulation of growth and of secretion in the mammary glands. Both growth and secretion are controlled mainly by hormones, but quite different hormones are involved in these two wholly distinct sets of processes. The anterior lobe of the pituitary exercises a direct control (through its lactogenic hormone, prolactin) over milk secretion; in addition it exercises an indirect control (through estrogen, progesterone and possibly other sterols) and perhaps also a direct control (through a mammogenic pituitary hormone) over the development and growth of the mammary glands.
