Gland that secrete regulatory substances directly into the circulation and not through a duct.
(EHN-do-krihn gland) One of two main categories of glands, in which the products are secreted into the extracellular space and transported by the bloodstream. Also called ductless glands.
gland that secretes one or more hormones into the blood.
any of the glands of the endocrine system that secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream
a ductless gland whose secretory products are picked up by capillaries in the region
a specialized structures that are found in different parts of the body that secrete hormones
a type of organ (such as the pancreas) that releases hormones (types of natural chemicals) into the blood or lymph nodes
The endocrine glands manufacture one or more hormones and secrete them directly into the bloodstream. Endocrine glands include the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, ovary, testis, placenta and part of the pancreas.

A gland that secretes hormones directly into the blood stream.
A ductless gland, e.g., the thyroid or the pituitary glands, which produces one or more hormones which will be released into the bloodstream to be distributed body wide in order to interact with their target cells, tissues, and organs.
A ductless gland whose secretions pass directly into the lymph or blood stream. These glands produce hormones which control action and development of other parts of the body either by activation or by inhibition.
