Effect Of Prolonged Administration Of Acid Extract Of Anterior Pituitary On The Thyroid Gland Of Guinea-Pigs



Effect Of Prolonged Administration Of Acid Extract Of Anterior Pituitary On The Thyroid Gland Of Guinea-Pigs



British Medical Journal 2(3852): 805-820.3



The prolonged administration of acid extract of anterior pituitary to guineapigs produces thyroid hyperplasia exophthalmos and suprarenal enlargement. In the majority of the experimental animals the thyroid glands involuted to the colloid state during treatment but some remained hyperplastic. It could not be shown however that the involution was due to thyroid exhaustion.
