Cadmium effects on dopamine turnover and plasma levels of prolactin, GH and ACTH

Abstract

This paper analyzes possible dopamine (DA) mediated cadmium effects on plasma levels of prolactin, growing hormone (GH) and adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), and if these changes are related to metal accumulation. For that purpose, adult male rats were treated with 50 mg/L of CdCl2 in the drinking water for one month. Plasma levels of prolactin, ACTH and… (More)
