Abstract

Growth rates and food consumption were measured in rats following a non lethal scald burn on 26-28 per cent body surface to develop an animal model for studies of chronic metabolic alterations in the post burn recovery period. The injury was produced by immersing the dorsum of 235-260 g rats in 90°C water for 10 seconds. The burned animals grew at an attenuated rate compared to controls. At 11 weeks post burn, prior to the wound healing of the first rat, the burned animals weighed only 394 ± 10 g v. 494 ± 9 g (mean ± s.e.) in controls. At 42 weeks, when half of the animals healed, the body weight of healed rats (547 ± 16 g) was lower (P
