Restraint stress and lead-induced reduction in progeny output by male rats

Abstract

We investigated whether restraint stress interferes with lead-induced suppressed fertility in rats. Male Wister rats (weighing 200 ± 10 g in the beginning of the experiment) were subjected to either restraint stress (5 hours/day) or exposed to lead (0.15%) or both for 60 days. To assess the fertility, control and experimental males were cohabited with… (More)
