Rabbits were treated with pharmacological doses of either dexamethasone, estrogen, or progesterone during 1 wk. Two milliliters of solution containing Ca (plus Mg, K, and Na) were infused into a double-ligated (4 cm apart) gut loop (jejunum). In addition, an adjacent loop was double ligated but received no infusion. Uterine horns… CONTINUE READING
