The developmental toxicity of trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (t-DCE), a component of certain Freon cleaning agents, was examined in pregnant rats. t-DCE was administered by inhalation 6 hr daily on Days 7-16 of gestation (the day copulation was confirmed was termed Day 1 of gestation) at exposure levels of 0, 2000, 6000, or 12,000 ppm. The offspring were then(More)
Dibasic esters (DBE) are a mixture of 3 carboxylic acid esters which are used in the paint and coatings industry. In this study, groups of pregnant Crl:CD BR rats were exposed to either 0.16, 0.4, or 1.0 mg DBE/L by inhalation for 6 hr/day from Days 7 through 16 of gestation (day in which copulation plug was detected was designated Day 1G). A control group(More)
Inhalation studies were conducted to determine the potential toxicity of HCFC-124. Groups of rats and mice were exposed to HCFC-124 6 hr/day, 5 days/week for 13 weeks at 0, 5000, 15,000, and 50,000 ppm. Subgroups of rats and mice were held for a 1-month recovery period. A functional observational battery (FOB) was conducted on rats at 0, 4, 13, and 16(More)
The teratogenic potential of a versatile solvent, N-formylpiperidine (NFP), was evaluated in the rat. Three groups of 25 mated female Sprague-Dawley rats were given 110, 220, or 440 mg/kg/day NFP in distilled water by gavage on Days 6 through 20 of gestation. A control group of 25 animals received distilled water on a comparable regimen. Maternal animals(More)
Dimethyl sulfate (DMS; CAS No. 77-78) is a colorless, oily liquid which is used as a chemical intermediate and as a reactant in producing polyurethane resins. In this study, groups of pregnant Crl:CD BR rats were exposed, nose-only, to either 0.1, 0.7 or 1.5 ppm DMS by inhalation for 6 hr/day from Days 7 through 16 of gestation (day in which copulation plug(More)
In the present work we study the association between chronic active gastritis (CAG), atypical regeneration and dysplasia and gastric Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection. We study two groups of endoscopic biopsies. Regenerative changes and dysplasia were evaluated according to Gandur-Maymneh et al. classification which was simplified in typical and atypical(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) can prevent and/or reverse steroid-induced IOP elevation in an ovine model. METHODS Three animal groups were subjected to bilateral steroid-induced IOP elevation using thrice daily topical ocular prednisolone administration. In the first group (N = 8), one eye each of two sheep was injected(More)
