Assessment of lead toxicity in traffic controllers of Alexandria, Egypt, road intersections.
Blood lead level (BPbL) was determined in forty-five traffic controllers working on Alexandria road intersections. Central nervous system dysfunction in the subjects studied was investigated by meansExpand
Mutagenic and carcinogenic pesticides used in the agricultural environment of Gaza Strip.
More than 100 metric tons of formulated pesticides (about 75 pesticides) are used annually in Gaza Strip. It was found that 19 of these pesticides, that have been used, are internationally suspended,Expand
Is delayed neurotoxicity a property of all organophosphorus compounds? A study with a model compound: parathion.
A recently reported hypothesis of other investigators that the induction of delayed neurotoxicity is a property of all organophosphorus compounds including parathion was evaluated in light of theExpand
Biochemical interaction of six OP delayed neurotoxicants with several neurotargets.
Five organophosphorous insecticides: Leptophos, EPN, Cyanofenphos, trichloronate and salithion proved to cause irreversible ataxia not only to chicken but also to mice and sheep. TOCP was included asExpand
Lindane may enhance nocturnal pinealN-acetyltransferase activity via β-adrenergic receptors
Lindane, a chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticide, was previously shown to enhance the nighttime rise in pineal N -acetyltransferase (NAT) activity and melatonin as well as serum melatonin levels. TheExpand
Lindane may enhance nocturnal pineal N-acetyltransferase activity via beta-adrenergic receptors.
Lindane, a chlorinated hydrocarbon pesticide, was previously shown to enhance the nighttime rise in pineal N-acetyltransferase (NAT) activity and melatonin as well as serum melatonin levels. TheExpand
Neurotoxicity of organophosphorus insecticides Leptophos and EPN.
Phosfolan, chlorpyrifos, and stirophos when applied to white mice at sublethal doses did not induce any delayed neurotoxic effect. On the other hand, Leptophos and EPN when administered orally atExpand
Subcellular distribution of neurotoxic esterase activity in lamb and mouse brain.
Brain tissue samples of mice (7.6 g from 25 mouse brains and lamb (25 g) were homogenized and subcellular fractions prepared in order to assay the distribution of neurotoxic esterase (NTE) activity.Expand
