The aim of the present study was to determine and compare the clinical, hematological, biochemical and histopathological changes induced by cyanide, thiocyanate and chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) in goats. Sixteen Boer‐Spanish cross‐bred female goats were divided into four treatment groups: (1) control, (2) potassium cyanide (KCN) at 3.8 mg kg−1 day−1, (3) potassium thiocyanate (KSCN) at 4.5 mg kg−1 day−1 and (4) ground frozen chokecherry leaves and flowers at a target dose of 2.5 mg HCN kg−1… Expand

TLDR
The toxic effects of the ingestion of cassava leaves by goats can be attributed to the action of cyanide released from cyanogenic glycosides, and none of the effects was promoted by these glycoside directly. Expand
Toxic potentials of sodium cyanide in rats upon subchronic exposure
The current study was performed to assess the adverse effect of sodium cyanide (NaCN) on haematology, serum biochemistry and histology of liver and kidney in male Wistar rats. Twenty eight rats wereExpand
Coenzyme Q10 Ameliorates potassium cyanide-induced toxicosis in a mouse model
TLDR
CoQ10 significantly reinforced the neurological integrity and restored cellular glutathione (reduced form) in both the liver and brain, a clear indication of reduced oxidative stress in the face of KCN-induced toxicosis. Expand
Use of bentonite clay for the reduction of cyanide poisoning after consumption of cassava waste water by Wistar albino rat
The in vivo study of the effect of bentonite on cyanide poisoning and its effect on plasma urea was investigated. A total of 45 wistar albino rats were used. The rats were divided into four groupsExpand
Cyanide toxicity and interference with diet selection in quail (Coturnix coturnix).
TLDR
Exposure to cyanide promotes damage to the liver and central nervous system in quails, and in contrast, the ingestion of sulfur by quail was not affected by exposure to cyanides. Expand
Poisoning by Cashew Apple (Anacardium occidentale L.) in Cattle
TLDR
The poisoning by Anacardium occidentale in cattle was described, finding that cashew may promote poisoning in cattle, and the main clinical signs are lethargy, staggering gait and, prostration. Expand
Histopathological changes induced in liver, kidney, heart and pancreas of rabbits by prolonged oral cyanide exposure.
TLDR
In conclusion, prolonged oral cyanide administration could have harmful effects on liver and kidney functions. Expand
Evaluation of the effective dose of amygdalin for the improvement of antioxidant gene expression and suppression of oxidative damage in mice
TLDR
Low-and medium-dose Amygdalin did not induce toxicity in the hepatic and testicular tissues of male mice, unlike high-dose amygdalin, which had a negative effect on oxidative balance in mice. Expand
Cyanide Toxicity of Freshly Prepared Smoothies and Juices Frequently Consumed
TLDR
It is observed that TCN is present in smoothies and juices containing raw flax seeds, fresh whole apples, and/or unpasteurized almond milk, which is a potential sublethal exposure of TCN by consumers. Expand
Patogênese, sinais clínicos e epidemiologia das intoxicações por plantas cianogênicas no nordeste brasileiro
TLDR
The mechanisms of action of cyanogenic plants and clinical signs and distribution of outbreaks in Northeastern Brazil are highlighted and the great importance and wide distribution of cyanogen plant poisoning is emphasized. Expand

Physiopathological Effects of the Administration of Chronic Cyanide to Growing Goats – A Model for Ingestion of Cyanogenic Plants
TLDR
The group receiving the highest dose of cyanide showed lower body weight gains and carcase weights and a decrease in plasma T3 concentrations compared to the control group, however, no diabetogenic effects were observed. Expand
Toxicokinetics of cyanide in rats, pigs and goats after oral dosing with potassium cyanide
TLDR
The hypothesis that the metabolism of cyanide and its main metabolite, thiocyanate, is species-linked is supported, with the goat being more sensitive to the toxic effects of cyanides/thiOCyanate. Expand
Neuropathologic study of long term cyanide administration to goats.
TLDR
Goat species can be a useful ruminant model to study the neurotoxic effects of long-term cyanide exposure, and apoptosis did not participate in the pathogenesis of the observed lesions. Expand
Milk transfer of cyanide and thiocyanate: Cyanide exposure by lactation in goats.
TLDR
It is suggested that lactating offspring can be indirectly intoxicated by maternal exposure to cyanide, as shown in the examples of dams and kids from the treated groups. Expand
Does prolonged oral exposure to cyanide promote hepatotoxicity and nephrotoxicity?
TLDR
An increase in the thiocyanate levels was verified in all experimental groups and in the thyroid gland an increase was observed in the number of reabsorption vacuoles on follicular colloid, in a dose-dependent manner, in all animals of the experimental groups. Expand

TLDR
Studies were carried out to determine the effects of the toxic principle linamarin, a cyanogenic glucoside, in a diet containing cassava in the form of gari fed to growing dogs for 14 weeks, causing generalized congestion and haemorrhage, periportal vacuolation of the liver, swelling, vacUolation and rupture of the epithelial cells of the proximal convoluted tubules of the kidney.

Comparison of the effects of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) organic cyanide and inorganic cyanide on muscle and bone development in a Nigerian breed of dog.
TLDR
There was retardation of muscle development in the gari-fed dogs and the effects of inorganic dietary cyanides on muscle development were different, while both forms of dietary cyanide had no adverse effect on bone development. Expand
Clinical and pathological effects of short‐term cyanide repeated dosing to goats
TLDR
Sub‐lethal cyanide intoxication in goats resulted in behavioral changes, and during the treatment period animals showed delayed signs of toxicity, and significant histologic lesions in goats were observed. Expand
Prenatal toxicity of cyanide in goats--a model for teratological studies in ruminants.
TLDR
A new animal model for teratogenic trials that could be important to evaluate the effects of chemicals throughout pregnancy in goats and potentially other ruminants is proposed. Expand
Does prolonged cyanide exposure have a diabetogenic effect?
TLDR
Chronic cyanide exposure did not promote diabetogenic effects in rats, swine or goats, suggesting that cyanide is not responsible for MRDM in humans. Expand
