The distribution of radioactivity in male C57BL/10 mice dosed with [14C]hexachlorobenzene (HCB) was followed over 21 days and found to be high in adipose tissue and adrenals, moderate in thymus whereas liver was relatively poorly labelled. A predose of iron (500 mg/kg), which greatly promotes the porphyrogenic action of HCB in this strain, had only a small(More)
Male and female F 344 rats were dosed every other day for 103 days with 50 mumole of hexachlorobenzene (HCB)/kg. Females developed a hepatic porphyria, the urine and liver levels of porphyrins being 40- and 310-fold higher respectively than those of males. Urine was periodically hydrolysed and analysed for the three metabolites pentachlorophenol,(More)
Inferior vena cava atresia (IVCA) is a rare but well described vascular anomaly. It is a rare risk factor for deep venous thrombosis (DVT), found in approximately 5% of cases of unprovoked lower extremity (LE) DVT in patients <30 years of age. Affected population is in the early thirties, predominantly male, often with a history of major physical exertion(More)
