Some of the Morphological Indicators of Laboratory Rats after Administration of Microelement Preparation


  • The Chuvash I. Yakovlev State Pedagogical University, Cheboksary, Russian Federation


The article deals with the investigation of the effect of Sedimin (Sediminum) preparation on bodyweight parameters and macromorphological indicators of internal secretion and endoexocrine glands of male and female outbred rats under the conditions of subacute experiment. It is shown that at intramuscular administration of Sedimin to laboratory male rats at a dose of 0.25 ml per animal on the 1st and 5th day of the experiment does not cause significant changes in macromorphology of thymus, supramental capsules and seminal glands, while similar doses of preparation administrated to female rats significantly affected the studied parameters of thyroid gland and thymus.
