Thermoregulatory responses of febrile sheep to spinal and hypothalamic heating.

Abstract

Fever was induced by the intravenous injection of 0.25 microgram/kg of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from Escherichia coli in eight conscious sheep exposed to ambient temperatures adjusted to the lower range of thermoneutrality. Chronic spinal or hypothalamic thermodes were perfused with water of 44 degrees C for 20 min or for most of the rising phase of fever… (More)
