Comments For abbreviations in left column of table see - tinyurl link . See notes beneath table. "...structural and functional alterations are naturally accompanied by causal kinetic changes (table 20.2): lactating animals show elevated proliferative indices, despite the increase in the crypt population, and after the cessation of lactation, the proliferative indices rapidly revert to non-pregnant values."
