The different sonometric assays, the methods used in order to decide if a noise is a nuisance are described and should be widely used to demarcate very quiet territories (climatic areas) and sectors to be improved. Expand
Effect of lindane on human lymphocyte responses to phytohemagglutinin.
It might be that lindane, shrinking the cellular soluble pool of labelled precursors and blocking the aggregation of the stimulated lymphocytes, acts on the surface membrane of the cells, and the resulting disorganization of membrane architecture could be related to the hydrophobic nature of the molecule.

Methodology for the detection and quantitation of delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol in plasma by dansylation and double labelling.
The use of dansylation and double labelling techniques provides a sensitive method for quantitation of Δ 9 -THC with 2.5 ng sensitivity per tube and 10% reproductibility. Expand
Effect of lindane on mouse peritoneal macrophages.
Among the effects of lindane in vitro on mouse peritoneal macrophages, the inhibition of uridine incorporation correlated with the reduction of intracellular uridine pool was the most pronounced and pinocytosis inhibition may have been associated with cytoplasm vacuolation. Expand
Teratologic Effects of Cannabis Extracts in Rabbits: A Preliminary Study
During the past decade, several research groups have investigated the teratogenic effects of marihuana extracts in animals and found no teratogen effects due to THC in the rats or guinea pigs. Expand
Liver-enzyme induction in lindane- and captan-treated rats.
Not only organochlorine pesticides but also others such as the phthalimide, captan, are potent inducers of the mixed-function oxidases, and the route of administration, dose and duration of treatment are predominant factors in their effects on the balance of enzymes involved in the detoxication or activation of chemicals.

A sensitive radioimmunoassay for colchicine
A sensitive and rapid RIA is developed using an antibody raised in goats after injection of N-desacetylthiocolchicine conjugated with bovine serum albumin (BSA) and the incubation time is short and dextran-coated charcoal is used for the separation. Expand
