  • Methods: We report on the first national survey in mainland Tanzania, conducted in 2004 to assess the extent to which iodated salt was used and its apparent impact on the total goitre prevalence (TGP) and urinary iodine concentrations (UIC) among the schoolchildren after USI was initiated.

  • Microsphere entrapment was approximately 160-180 times greater in the active salt gland than the inactive gland, inferring a similar change in blood flow through salt gland capillaries. (springer.com)
  • The volume of filled blood vessels increased from 0.03 ± 0.01% of secretory lobe volume in inactive salt gland sections to 0.70 ± 0.11% in active gland sections. (springer.com)
  • The results demonstrate that capillary blood flow in the salt gland of C. mydas can regulate the activity of the gland as a whole. (springer.com)
  • body
  • Salt glands were activated by a salt load of 27.0 mmol NaCl kg body mass (BM) −1 , resulting in a mean sodium secretion rate of 4.14 ± 0.11 mmol Na kg BM −1 h −1 for a single gland. (springer.com)
