Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


The content of serotonin in the blood, lungs, brain, small intestine and skin has demonstrated phasic changes in the development process of experimental pneumococcus infection in rats. During the first 12 hours after the pneumococcus infection a gradual insignificant rise of serotonin content occurred in the blood and organs with a subsequent sharp rise of biogenic amine (in 24–72 hours).
