    The effects of a combination of estradiol plus progesterone in the mammary gland were mimicked by norethindrone acetate and inhibited by both testosterone and cortisol. Estradiol,progesterone, norethindrone acetate, or testosterone did not affect spleen weight and size of mammary lymph nodes.However, cortisol significantly decreased not only spleen weights but also size of mammary lymph nodes.The results show that simultaneous evaluation of mammary gland growth, seminal vesicles, and spleen weight in the same animal is suitable for bioassay of estrogenicity as well as for detection of androgenic and antiandrogenic activities.
