Dose-Dependent Effects of Oxytocin on the Microcirculation in the Mammary Gland of the Lactating Rat
A number of studies have described the microcirculation of the rodent mammary gland usually through histological or vascular corrosion casting methodology (e.g. Yasugi et al., 1989). The objective of the study described below was to develop a method for in vivo microscopy of the mammary gland of the lactating rat and to observe the behaviour of the microcirculation during milk ejection following injection of oxytocin.
