The action of high doses of cigarette smoke alone or combined with coal dust or acrolein was investigated in noninbred Sprague-Dawley rats. Inhalation occurred up to six sessions per day (Hamburg machine), the animals being subjected to a treatment with oxygen after each inhalation session to reduce the carbon monoxide level in the blood. The amount of tar(More)
Experiments were conducted to quantify the effect of several variables on the mortality of insects exposed to an anoxic treatment in order to generate a model linking mortality to these variables. This study aims to explore the possible interest of using such a model to determine the characteristics of treatment (especially duration) needed to guarantee(More)
To evaluate the potential risk of pulmonary damage due to aerial spraying of the insecticide fenitrothion, rat lungs were examined under light and electron microscopy at 3, 7, 21, and 60 days after exposure. Rats were exposed by a "nose-only" apparatus for 1 hr to 2 or 500 mg/m3 of aerosolized fenitrothion (15%) mixed with solvent Cyclosol 63 (35%) and(More)
When animals are exposed to cigarette smoke, the concentration of carbon monoxide in blood is rapidly increased, so that intensive inhalation tests cannot be carried out. A simple apparatus is described to expose Rats alternatively to cigarette smoke and to oxygen in order to reduce the concentration of carbon monoxide in the blood. This method makes it(More)
