The potential for neurotoxicological and immunotoxicological effects of ethylbenzene was studied in young adult Crl:CD(SD) rats following 90-day oral (neurotoxicity) or 28-day inhalation (immunotoxicity) exposures. In the neurotoxicity study, ethylbenzene was administered orally via gavage twice daily at 0, 25, 125, or 250 mg/kg per dose (total daily(More)
Copper (Cu) is an essential trace element in the brain that can be toxic at elevated levels. Cu accumulation is a suspected etiology in several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and prion-induced disorders. Astrocytes are a proposed depot in the brain for Cu and other metals, including lead (Pb). This article(More)
Rapid and inexpensive methods are needed to investigate the interactions of complex mixtures. This commentary addresses the use of cell cultures to detect neurotoxicity of simple binary mixtures, which is a first step in the development of such methods. A small number of recent studies from our laboratory are examined. Though such studies are few, they(More)
