The effect of various concentrations of cadmium (Cd) in levels ranging from 0.75 to 12 μg/ml medium, on the secretion of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in first-trimester placental expiants, after 6 or 24 h incubation, employing both static and dynamic systems was examined. Later the unbound Cd was washed for 45 min with fresh medium devoid of Cd, followed by superfusion with the latter medium for 75 min, during which time samples were collected for hCG assay. For the superfusion… CONTINUE READING
