Four male beagle dogs received o,p'-DDT (50 mg/kg/day) in corn oil, administered in gelatin capsules, for 32 days. Four dogs used as controls received only corn oil. The treated dogs maintained body weights comparable to the controls and there were no overt signs of toxicity. The treated dogs showed a decreased eosinopenic response to ACTH after day 16. There was no significant difference in the plasma sodium and potassium concentrations or in the hematocrit before or after ACTH, nor in the 17-hydroxycorticosteroid (17-OHCS) response to ACTH between the treated and control dogs on any of the test days.
