Abstract

Four phytopharmaceutics (Carnivora, Pascotox forte-Injectopas, Esberitox N, Iascador M), which sometimes cause side effects after parenteral administration (fever, rigor, nausea), were examined for their endotoxin content by the kinetic turbidometric Limulus-amebocyte-lysate (LAL) microtitre test.
