The influence of ethane dimethanesulfonate (EDS), a specific toxicant for Leydig cells, on the morphometric characteristic of adult male rat adrenal cortex was examined on day 15 after administration. As expected, the dose of 75 mg kg-1 of EDS produced drastic reduction in serum testosterone levels followed by a decrease in testis and seminal vesicle(More)
Recently we have reported that ethane dimethane-sulphonate (EDS), the Leydig cell cytotoxin, caused marked atrophy of the adrenal cortex of adult male rats. The aim of this work was to examine whether a 9-day treatment with dexamethasone (0.25 mg/kg/d) or ACTH (40 IU/kg/d), which started 4 days prior to administration of a single dose of EDS (75 mg/kg),(More)
The influence of prolonged beta-adrenergic receptor blockade on stereologic parameters of the ventral prostate and serum testosterone concentrations was examined in adult rats injected with propranolol (0.1 or 0.4 mg kg-1/day) for 15 or 30 consecutive days. Both doses of propranolol reduced the relative and absolute volume of the ventral prostate blood(More)
The effects of chronic administration of the beta-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol (ISO) (120 microg/kg per day; subcutaneously) on the ventral prostate structure and serum testosterone concentrations were examined in adult rats with different androgen status: intact, intact testosterone-injected (1 mg/rat), surgically and chemically castrated rats.(More)
The influence of 15-day treatments with the beta-adrenergic receptor agonist isoproterenol (120 micrograms/kg/d) or the antagonist propranolol (1.00 mg/kg/d) on acid phosphatase and zinc levels in the ventral prostate was examined in intact rats, rats simultaneously injected with dexamethasone (0.25 mg/kg/d) and animals chemically castrated with a single(More)
