Pre-and Perinatal Endocrinology

  • Pierre C. Sizonenko

Abstract

The understanding of prenatal and perinatal endocrinology in humans still remains in a primitive stage compared with the accumulating knowledge obtained in animal studies, particularly in the rat, rabbit, sheep, and monkey (Jost and Picon, 1970). Obvious ethical limitations restrict the investigation of perinatal endocrinology in man, even though the relevance of such studies is critical to the understanding of endocrine development after birth. However, the increasing availability of specific assays, using very small samples of biological fluids, has accelerated the investigation of endocrine factors that represent important markers for maturation and behavior in the perinatal period.
