Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


The development of heat stroke in rats during exposure to a high ambient temperature (45°C) is accompanied by reduced accumulation of I131 in the thyroid gland, a reduced content of PBI-I131 and thyroxine in the peripheral blood plasma, and a reduced rate of disappearance of intravenously injected NaI131 from the blood stream. The relative content of mono-and, in particular, diiodotyrosines and also, to a lesser extent, of iodothyronines is reduced in trypsin digests of the thyroid gland.
