In 1991, routine biotoxin monitoring of bivalve molluscs at aquaculture sites along the eastern shore of Nova Scotia, Canada revealed a group of novel seafood toxins called spirolides, whose origin was the dinoflagellate Alexandrium ostenfeldii. Result from this preliminary study in rodents demonstrates a highly toxic lethal response in rats and mice after(More)
We report the developmental neuropathology for rat pups at postnatal day (PND) 37 and PND 77 and the molecular biomarkers for PND 35, 75, and 350 after perinatal exposure to a reconstituted mixture of persistent organochlorine pollutants (POPs) based on the blood profiles of people living in the Great Lake Basin. The developmental neuropathology included(More)
Domoic acid produced by marine algae has been shown to cause acute and chronic neurologic sequelae in Californian sea lions following acute or low-dose exposure. Histological findings in affected animals included a degenerative cardiomyopathy that was hypothesized to be caused by over-excitation of the glutamate receptors (GluRs) speculated to be present in(More)
