Assessment of inhaled acute ammonia-induced lung injury in rats.


This study examined acute toxicity and lung injury following inhalation exposure to ammonia. Male Sprague-Dawley rats (300-350 g) were exposed to 9000, 20,000, 23,000, 26,000, 30,000 or 35,000 ppm of ammonia for 20 min in a custom head-out exposure system. The exposure atmosphere, which attained steady state within 3 min for all ammonia concentrations, was… (More)
