Two organotin pesticides, triphenyltin acetate (TPTA) and triphenyltin hydroxide (TPTH), were evaluated for their ability to induce micronuclei (MN) and sister chromatid exchange (SCE) in vitro using cultured Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and in vivo BALB/c mouse erythrocytes. Both pesticides induced a dose-dependent increase but only TPTH induced a(More)
Our purpose was to study the antiproliferative effect of cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) on rabbit Tenon's fibroblasts and the efficacy of Ara-C as an adjunctive antifibrosis treatment for glaucoma filtration surgery in the rabbit eye. Rabbit Tenon's fibroblasts were exposed to 1 microg/ml of Ara-C for various time intervals, then cell number and viability was(More)
