Reduction in hepatic lipid and plasma estradiol in estrogenized chicks injected with ascorbic acid



Reduction in hepatic lipid and plasma estradiol in estrogenized chicks injected with ascorbic acid



Proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine. Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine 178(2): 200-203



Injecting White Leghorn chicks every other day with 20 mg ascorbic acid significantly reduced the increase in liver weight and lipids caused by feeding a diet with 0.1% dienestrol diacetate. In chicks fed 2 different basal diets containing 0.1% dienestrol diacetate, injecting chicks every other day with 20 mg .alpha.-tocopherol did not significantly reduce liver weight or lipids while the ascorbic acid injections did. Injecting meat-type chicks implanted with estradiol with 10 mg ascorbic acid daily significantly reduced liver weight, liver lipids and plasma estradiol, but injecting with 8 mg .alpha.-tocopherol daily had no significant effect.
