The effects of antihypertensive drugs on the performance of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) in the elevated plus-maze were determined. Male SHR (3 months old) were submitted to long-term treatment (15 days) with alpha-methyldopa (alpha MD, 5 g/l, N = 10) and hydralazine (HYD, 100 mg/l, N = 10) given orally, diluted in water. After the drug treatment,(More)
To study the frequency of ocular lesions in 30 gerbils infected with 100 embryonated eggs of Toxocara canis, indirect binocular ophthalmoscopy was performed 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 and 38 days after infection.

It is currently accepted that young spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) have lower pressure levels than adult SHR in which the hypertension is well established, reaching the highest plateau at about 24 weeks, and that treatment with magnesium initiated during intrauterine life postpones the onset of cardiovascular alterations in SHR to about 90 days.(More)
