Until a few years ago, lactogenic hormones were the preserve of academic endocrinologists or dairy scientists, and the role of these hormones in clinical endocrinology was unknown. Recently there has been an upsurge of interest following the discovery of human placental lactogen in 1962 and the detection of prolactin (as distinct from human growth hormone) in human pituitary tissue in 1969 and 1970.
