Elevation of plasma ACTH concentration in rabbits made febrile by systemic injection of bacterial endotoxin.

Abstract

This study was carried out to investigate the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) response in rabbits made febrile by systemic injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS, Salmonella typhosa endotoxin). Intravenous (i.v.) injection of LPS (0.1 microgram/kg and 1.0 microgram/kg) increased rectal temperature (biphasic fever) and the plasma concentration of ACTH (ACTH… (More)
