Immature male rats were treated with 1.0 mg cortisone acetate daily for 2 or 4 weeks starting at 23 days of age and were maintained on paired or ad libitum feeding regimes. Body, adrenal and thymus weights were reduced as compared to control animals. Actual testes weights were usually reduced less than body, liver or kidney weights. The ratios of testicular to body weight were significantly increased in the animals autopsied at the end of treatment. Histological examination of the testes reveale...

Summary and Conclusions1. Immature female rats were treated with 1.0 mg of cortisone acetate daily for 2 or 4 weeks starting at 23 days of age and were maintained on pair or ad libido feeding regimes. 2. Body weight, adrenal and thymus weights were reduced compared to control animals. These differences were less marked when animals were autopsied 3 weeks after cessation of treatment. 3. The weights of ovary and uterus were generally greater in the treated animals. The increased weight of the ova...
