Adult male Fischer 344 rats were killed after 5, 12, 19 or 31 days' 'occupational' (6 hr/day, 5 days/wk), 'semi-continuous' (22 hr/day, 5 days/wk) or 'continuous' (22 hr/day, 7 days/wk) exposure to 125 ppm decalin vapour. Control rats were exposed to filtered air. Kidney sections were evaluated to determine the nature and time-course of development of(More)
Studies were conducted to gain additional information about the spontaneous and decalin-exacerbated formation of hyaline droplets within the cytoplasm of proximal convoluted tubule (PCT) epithelial cells of the adult male rat. Renal cortical tissue protein patterns determined through two-dimensional gel electrophoresis revealed four species of a(More)
Male and female Fischer 344 rats were given decalin by oral gavage for 5 or 12 consecutive days in order to determine whether oral dosing would result in light microscopically evident renal effects that were comparable to those that have been observed after inhalation exposure. Decalin (in corn oil vehicle) was administered at doses of 0, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0 or(More)
Disposable infant diapers with absorbent gelling material (cross-linked sodium polyacrylates) incorporated into the core were clinically evaluated for their effect on infant skin condition. Absorbent gelling materials tightly hold water and provide pH control by a buffering capacity as well as by helping to segregate urine apart from feces. Four clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Fibrosis is a physiological response to cellular injury in the liver and is mediated by the activation of hepatic stellate cells resulting in the replacement of hepatocytes with extracellular matrix comprised principally of collagen 1 to form a hepatic scar. Although the novel hexaco-ordinated globin cytoglobin was identified in activated hepatic(More)
Oral feeding studies of a crosslinked, high-molecular-weight polyacrylate polymer (PA) were conducted to (1) characterize the biological effects following exposure to either 0, 300, 1000, or 3000 mg PA/kg/day for 93 days; (2) characterize the fecal and urinary mineral excretion at these same dose levels; and (3) monitor the absorption, distribution, and(More)
Fischer 344 male rats and C57BL/6 male mice were exposed 'continuously' (22 hr/day, 7 days/wk) for 20, 28 or 35 days to a model compound, decalin, at 0, 25, 62.5 or 125 ppm. Fischer 344 female rats were exposed 'continuously' to decalin at 0 or 125 ppm for 28 days. No histopathological changes were observed in selected organs of female rats or male mice(More)
