Summary. Uterine vascular permeability and tissue blood volume during the development of the oil-induced decidual cell reaction (DCR) in ovariectomized steroid-treated rats were assessed by measuring the extravascular accumulation of 125I-labelled human serum albumin and the tissue content of 51Cr-labelled red cells 30 min after intravenous administration. Within 15 min of oil instillation into one uterine horn, the vascular permeability of the horn was significantly elevated. Permeability rose to a sharp peak (10 times control levels) 9 h after oil instillation, but dropped to 5 times control values by 12 h and continued a steady decline over the next 7 days. Although a marked increase in uterine weight was associated with the development of the DCR, there was no significant change in blood volume/g tissue until 4 days after oil instillation.
Reproduction is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
The two types of article metrics we measure are (i) more traditional full-text views and pdf downloads, and (ii) Altmetric data, which shows the wider impact of articles in a range of non-traditional sources, such as social media.
