Effect of lithium chloride on adrenocortical activity in male rats: evidence of dose and duration dependent response.


Changes in the adrenal weight, adrenal 5-ene-3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase (5-ene-3 beta-HSD) activity and serum levels of corticosterone were observed in male wistar rats after the treatment of lithium chloride in the doses of 100, 200 and 400 micrograms/100 g of body weight/day for 7, 14 and 21 days.
