Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of the continued by mouth po, administration of o,p'-DDT on the adrenal cortex of the beagle. Four of eight males received o,p'-DDT (50 mg kg/day) dissolved in corn oil and administered in gelatin capsules; four received corn oil only. Results from this study suggest that o,p'-DDT does not block the synthesis of corticosteroids by the adrenal cortex in the beagle dog as does o,p'-DDD.
