The experiments were carried out with the cultured thymic glands of the 7 d old rats. 3H-thymidine incorporation rate, histological alterations and the lipid level within the entire gland wereExpand
Effect of Lithium Salts on the Microstructure of the Thymus and on Vitamin C Content in Some Lymphatic Organs, the Liver and Suprarenal Glands in F1 Mouse Crosses (CBA X C57BL)
The administration of lithium chloride (LiCl) to mice by intraperitoneal injection caused involution in the thymus, both in the cortex and medulla. Lithium also considerably decreased vitamin CExpand
