Mimosa tannin and phenol-based synthetic tannin (syntan) were tested for toxicity to sea urchin (Paracentrotus lividus and Sphaerechinus granularis) early development and to marine algal growth (Dunaliella tertiolecta). Sea urchin embryogenesis was affected by vegetable tannin and syntan water extracts (VTWE and STWE) at levels >or=1mg/L. Developmental(More)
BACKGROUND In clinical practice it is very difficult to determine a final weight that is the expression of normovolemia. In hemodialysis (HD), 'dry weight' is conventionally defined as the weight reached by the patient at the end of that hemodialytic session when the maximum quantity of fluids is removed without inducing any symptomatology. The(More)
A series of studies investigated the toxicities of tannery-derived complex mixtures, i.e. vegetable tannin (VT) from Acacia sp. or phenol-based synthetic tannin (ST), and waste-water from tannin-based vs. chromium-based tanneries. Toxicity was evaluated by multiple bioassays including developmental defects and loss of fertilization rate in sea urchin(More)
The morphological and functional alterations of the smooth endoplasmic reticulum of the liver cell related to biliary stasis have brought attention to drug biotransformation during cholestasis. The metabolism of meprobamate, pentobarbital and tolbutamide was assessed in subjects with intrahepatic recurrent cholestasis (3), cholestatic hepatitis (6),(More)
This study was designed to investigate the composition and the toxicity of leather tanning wastewater and conditioned sludge collected at the leather tanning wastewater treatment plant (CODISO) located in Solofra, Avellino (Southern Italy). Samples were analyzed for their conventional parameters (COD, TSS, chromium and ammonia) and for metal content.(More)
The present research show, an statistical study of the effects of ammonium metavanadate (AMV) on size, weight and number of offsprings of 56 albino swiss mice (male and female) was carried out. These mice ingested AMV in concentration of 100 and 200 ppm "ad libitum" since birth, continuing throughout breasting until mating. The control group received water(More)
