Anatomical, physiological, biochemical and molecular factors that contribute to chemical-induced nasal carcinogenesis are either largely divergent between test species and humans, or we know very little of them. These factors, let alone the uncertainty associated with our knowledge gap, present a risk assessor with the formidable task of making judgments(More)
The purpose of this review is to provide a compilation of work examining DNA damage in the nasal cavity. There are numerous methods to identify and quantify damage to DNA and the diversity of methods and toxicologic endpoints is illustrated by the range of studies presented here. There are a large number of independent studies measuring endpoints in the(More)
1. Half-life, apparent volume of distribution and metabolic clearance rate for antipyrine elimination were reliably estimated from either plasma or saliva samples. 2. Pharmacokinetic analysis of antipyrine from saliva utilizing a simple and sensitive colourimetric technique provided a convenient method for assessing the activity of hepatic microsomal(More)
The Barrens Topminnow (Fundulus julisia) has undergone a rapid and dramatic decline. In the 1980s, at least twenty localities with Barrens Topminnows were known to exist in the Barrens Plateau region of middle Tennessee; currently only three areas with natural (not stocked) populations remain. The long-term survival of the Barrens Topminnow will depend(More)
Hexamethylphosphoramide (HMPA) is a rat nasal carcinogen that induces squamous cell carcinomas in the anterior portions of the nasal cavity following chronic inhalation exposures as low as 50 ppb. These tumors may arise as a result of P-450-mediated release of formaldehyde (HCHO), a known rat nasal carcinogen. The goal of this research was to investigate(More)
