Intra-atrial cannulation provides assessment of endocrine change within animals. Protocols for permanent tethers used in short-term 5- to 10-day experiments and permanent vascular access used in long-term (>10 days) experiments are presented. A protocol for blood processing is also included. Data from a longitudinal endocrine baseline assessment (LEBA) and… CONTINUE READING
