In this experiment, instead of thymectomizing rats, cortisone was injected to cause thymic involution and lymphopenia. As thymic hormone had been shown to stimulate lymphocyte production in thymectomized animals, homogenized thymus glands were injected into these hyperadrenocorticosterold animals in an attempt to restore the lymphooyte count to normal.
