Much work has been done upon the response of immature rats' testes and accessories to male hormones. The treatments in general have been over a long period of time. In this research, the effects of testosterone propionate on the testes and accessories were observed after injection of testosterone propionate for a period of 14 days. The objectives being: I. To study the normal condition of the testes and accessory sex organs of the rat which may be compared with modifications of these organs in experimental animals. II. To observe the responses that the male testes and accessories make after the injection of testosterone propionate into 22 days of age rats for a period of 14 days. III. To determine if the effects of testosterone propionate are parallel to the effects of the male hormone secreted by the testes. IV. To show how castration affect the accessory sex organs, and find out if testosterone propionate injection will prevent the appearance of castrate characteristics.
