In parallel to formulating the paradigm of developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD), the search began on mechanisms of programming/imprinting in ontogeny. Some recent evidence has revealed the important role of glucocorticoids in such mechanisms. However, in the last decades numerous data have been accumulated on participation of other hormones in developmental bioregulation. In present article we analyse these data, as referred to melatonin, but also to neuroactive steroids, somatolactogens and related peptides: insulin-like growth factor of type I (IGF-I) and oxytocin, i.e. peptide regulators related to growth and lactation respectively. Special attention was devoted to the evidence of glucocorticoid interactions with some of these hormones.
