The influence of a number of steroid molecules on hepatic metabolism was determined in relationship to their ability to alter endotoxin lethality in intact mice. Progesterone, testosterone, estradiol, pregnenolone-16-alpha-carbonitrile and spironolactone did not alter endotoxin lethality, liver glycogen or tryptophan pyrrolase (TP) levels; all these… CONTINUE READING
