Blood glucose and insulin levels in thymectomized rats

G. Csaba, P. Barath

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The rise of blood glucose level under sugar load was much greater in thymectomized than in normal rats, whereas the insulin level remained practically unchanged. This suggests that the rise of blood sugar level is due to two factors, one being the accumulation in blood of a substance corresponding to the blood glucose level stimulator stored in the thymus, the other the simultaneous inhibition of insulin production, or of insulin transport, into blood.
