1. Thyroidectomy was performed on twelve fetal sheep between 111 and 115 days gestation. Measurement of fetal lung liquid secretion and absorption rates (Jv) were made at rest and during short (45 min) and long (5 h) infusions of adrenaline (0.5 micrograms/min) in a total of thirty-seven experiments, some in the absence of triiodothyronine (T3) and… CONTINUE READING
