    • Abstract

       

      The accessory glands of reproduction in slender loris exhibit reduction in secretory activity following castration for 15 days and 30 days. Administration of androgens (testosterone—propionate and 5α dihydrotestosterone) to castrated animals had a differential effect in maintaining the biochemical parameters like citric acid and fructose.
