 en Histomorphometric study of thyroid gland of female Wistar rats exposed to alcohol during pregnancy and/or lactation
Onu, Josephat E.; Oke, Bankole O.; Ozegbe, Peter C. & Oyewale, Johnson O.

Abstract

The effect of alcohol on the histomorphology of thyroid gland of female rat offspring exposed to alcohol during pregnancy and/or lactation was studied. Previously published protocols for similar studies were followed. Data from both absolute and relative weights, coupled with histologic data from the thyroid glands of the alcohol-exposed rats suggest that alcohol consumption during pregnancy and/or lactation could be injurious to the thyroid glands of the female offspring.
