The Effect of Emotional and Severe Pathological Stresses on the Level of Arterial Pressure and the Production of Testosterone in Female and Male Rats

The serum level of testosterone is indicator of organismcapacity. Chronic stress is accompanied by development of more pronounced arterial hypertension in males compared with females that is associated with the decrease in production of testosterone in males but not in females.

Morphofunctional Changes in Microcirculatory Vessels of Hypertensive Rats’ Cardiac Muscle under Stress

Investigations of disorders of the heart’s structure and functions at the early stages of development, elaboration of prophylactic measures preventing or decreasing the risk of myocardium in- farction with the presence of the hypertension disease continue to remain unconditionally topical up to now. The aim of this ex- perimental work lies in finding out the morphofunctional signs of cardiovascular lesions produced by stress factors with the presence of arterial hypertension.
