Friday, September 4, 2009

AZT has become the standard medication to prevent the transmission of the human immunodeficiency virus from mother to fetus. The present study was designed to assess the acoustic startle response in adult rats that had been perinatally exposed to AZT. One SR-LAB acoustic startle sound-attenuating chamber (San Diego Instruments) with fan and light recoded the degree of deflection of the platform as the subject responded to the startle stimulus.
