Effects of chronic exposure (25 days) to continuous (CHE) or discontinuous (DHE) hot environment (34 degrees C) on growth rate, food intake and cortico-adrenal function were studied in adult male rats. Growth rate and food intake were 40 and 31% less respectively in CHE and 7 and 9% less respectively in DHE than in control (CE) animals. The adrenal response to heat (40 degrees C) was reduced by 54 and 82% in CHE and DHE rats respectively but the plasma corticosterone (B) response to exogenous… CONTINUE READING
