Acute nose-only exposure of rats to phosgene. Part II. Concentration x time dependence of changes in bronchoalveolar lavage during a follow-up period of 3 months.


Groups of young adult male Wistar rats were acutely exposed to phosgene gas for either 30 or 240 min using a directed-flow nose-only mode of exposure. In 30-min exposed rats the concentrations were 0.94, 2.02, 3.89, 7.35, and 15.36 mg/m3, which relate to C x t products of 28.2, 60.6, 116.7, 220.5, and 460.8 mg/m3 x min. In 240-min exposed rats the… (More)
