Aims: To examine the morphometric changes produced on lung of neonatal rats treated with prenatal administration of betamethasone or dexamethasone, and test the hypothesis if glucocorticoids would produce any difference when pups are exposed to hypoxia and its recovery with oxygen or air ambient.Material and Methods: Dexamethasone, Bethametasone or equivalent saline solution was administered i.v. To gestant Wistar rats on 20 and 21 day of gestation. All rats delivered their pups within 48 hours… CONTINUE READING
