1. Changes in plasma corticosterone concentrations according to puncture sites and various challenges including injections of an ACTH agonist (Immediate Synacthen) were investigated in male mule ducks. 2. Lower concentrations were measured in samples drawn by puncture from the occipital sinus than at a wing vein site. 3. Immobilisation and a single intramuscular injection of saline solution (1 ml, 0.9%) had no effect on plasma corticosterone after 15 min. 4. A single intramuscular injection of… CONTINUE READING
