The effects of continuous chloroform and halothane anesthesia on plasma prolactin levels in ovariectomized estrogen-treated rats
- 7 Downloads
In ovariectomized, estrogen-treated rats bearing indwelling aortic catheters, continuous inhalation of chloroform or halothane resulted in increases in plasma prolactin levels 10 min after the exposure to the anesthetics. The plasma prolactin levels over the subsequent 2 h, however, were not significantly different from that of the control animals.
