[Animal experiment studies of the effect of the hazardous substance carbon tetrachloride on peripheral nerves].


The deleterious effects of Carbon Tetrachloride, widely used industrially, on the peripheral nervous system was investigated by experimentation on rabbits. Long-term infusion simulated various conditions of exposure to obtain pharmacological and electroneurographic data. Tetrachlorethen is shown to induce reversible dysfunctions of the peripheral nervous… (More)
