Abstract

The effect of unilateral ovariectomy (OVX) on the weight of the remaining ovary was studied in hypophysectomized (HYPOX) rats. 2 weeks following hypophysectomy + unilateral OVX the weight loss of the ovary is significantly less than that in HYPOX rats having two ovaries. Present data together with previous findings suggest that a neural pathway between the ovaries and the CNS may be involved in the mechanism of compensatory ovarian hypertrophy following removal of one ovary.
