Figure 2 - Effect of MgCl2 and diazepam alone or in combination on rectal temperature. The groups assigned to the MgCl2 (2.5, 5.0 or 7.5 mmol/kg) treatments, either as a single dose or as multiple doses, were pooled since core temperatures did not differ among the individual groups. The groups treated with both substances were also pooled, i.e., MgCl2 (1x) + DZ and MgCl2 (4x) + DZ. *P<0.05 vs vehicle group. Data are reported as the mean ± SEM.
