Effect of superior cervical ganglionectomy on 24-h variations in hormone secretion from the anterior hypophysis and in hypothalamic monoamine turnover during the preclinical phase of Freund's adjuvant arthritis in rats.

Abstract

The effect of superior cervical ganglionectomy (SCGx) on 24-h rhythms of circulating adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), growth hormone (GH), prolactin and luteinizing hormone (LH) and of hypothalamic noradrenaline content and dopamine and serotonin turnover, was assessed in rats 3 days after administering Freund's complete adjuvant. In sham-operated rats… (More)
