The specificity and characteristics of the degeneration of myelinated axons after chronic guanethidine treatment have been investigated in sympathetic and non-sympathetic nerves. Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats aged approximately 43 weeks were treated with guanethidine sulphate (50 mg per kg body weight per day) for between ten days and six weeks. Tissues… (More)
