The Role of Sex and Iodine Deficiency in the Growth and Function of the Rat Thyroid Transplantable Tumor1

Abstract

In a study of the role of sex and iodine deficiency in the growth and function of thyroid carcinoma in rats, half of the male and female litter rats were surgically gonadectomized at the age of two months. One month later, all animals were implanted with a transplantable, autonomous, follicular thy roid carcinoma and one-half of all animals were given an iodine-deficient diet. Six weeks later, the animals were injected with 131I and thymidine-3H and sacrificed.
