Effects of twice daily administration of a beta-agonist terbutaline on body composition of growing Wistar rats were evaluated in well nourished (WN) male pups of small litters and compared with pre-weaning nutritionally deprived (PND) pups of large litters. Carcass analysis at 21 days of age showed increased cardiac weights in WN pups on terbutaline treatment. The lipid content of treated rats, both WN and PND, were significantly reduced with no changes in the total protein content of the carcass. Non-specific beta-agonists like terbutaline influence the lipid and not the protein content of both well-nourished and undernourished growing male rats.
