Effects of cyclic starvation-feeding and of splenectomy on the development of hemosiderosis in rat livers.


The development of siderosis of liver and spleen was investigated in rats subjected alternately to periods of starvation and periods of feeding of diets rich in iron (0.71% or 1.23% Fe) or of control diets, during periods ranging up to 245 days.
