abstract

  • We measured the carotid body volume of rats treated with chronic hypoxia alone and chronic hypoxia together with a single neonatal injection of N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (10 mg/kg). All the animals so treated showed enlargement of their carotid bodies, but no carotid body chemodectomas occurred.
