Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Chlorpromazine in low doses (1.25 mg kg) reduces the tolerance to glucose load for more than 24 hr. The effect is not related to changes in body temperature and is present in both adrenalectomized and adrenal demedullated rats. Part of this effect of chlorpromazine is related to changes in permeability as shown by the decreased disappearance from blood stream of arabinose, a sugar which is not phosphorilated, after arabinose load.
