Long-Evans hooded rat pups were given 600 mg/kg body weight lead acetate every 24 hours via stomach intubation beginning one day after birth until an accumulative dose of 2400 mg/kg was administered. The body weights of the lead treated rat pups at 10 and 30 days of age were not significantly decreased when compared to controls. The brain weights at 10 and 30 days of age in the lead exposed rats was significantly greater than those of the control rats. Blood lead levels averaged 526.35… CONTINUE READING
