Fetal lung lecithin metabolism was examined in rhesus monkey gestations complicated by glucose intolerance secondary to maternal streptozotocin (STZ) administration. Fetuses of STZ-treated mothers were delivered at 85% to 89% of term and were compared to two control groups of fetuses from normal pregnancies--one group age-matched to the STZ pregnancies, and the other composed of fetuses delivered in the final 10% of gestation. In the glucose-intolerant pregnancies, two measures of fetal lung… CONTINUE READING
