Article metrics

Abstract

Young adult mice injected with anti-hypophysis serum develop wasting disease such as after neonatal thymectomy and atrophy of the thymus. This and the finding of changes in the hypophysis after neonatal thymectomy suggest a relationship between the function of the hypophysis and that of the thymus.
