Induction of apoptotic cell death in rat thymus and spleen after a bolus injection of methamphetamine

Abstract

We examined whether methamphetamine (MAP) induced apoptotic cell death in vivo. Male Wistar rats were injected intraperitoneally with 25 mg MAP/Kg body weight and were sacrificed at 4, 8 and 24 h.
