Animal performance and health status are adversely affected by long-term cyanide ingestion; however, the effects of cyanide ingestion by pigs have not been fully determined. The aim of the present study was to determine the effects of prolonged exposure to different doses of potassium cyanide (KCN) in growing-finishing swine. Twenty-four pigs, 45 days of age, were divided into four equal groups and treated with different doses of KCN: 0, 2.0, 4.0 or 6.0 mg per kg body weight per day for 70… Expand
Intoxication by Cyanide in Pregnant Sows: Prenatal and Postnatal Evaluation
TLDR
It is suggested that swine can serve as a useful animal model to assess the neurological, goitrogenic, and reproductive effects of cyanide toxicosis as well as the effects of maternal exposure to cyanide during pregnancy on both sows and their offspring. Expand
Toxicokinetic aspects of thiocyanate after oral exposure to cyanide in female Wistar rats in different physiological states
TLDR
Evidence is found that the metabolism of CN varies greatly considering the physiologic state of the female rat, being females at estrus probably more exposed by these substances than at gestation and lactation because in these states there are other compartments, fetus and milk, which may capture these substances, as demonstrated by the Vd values.

Evaluation of some Enzymatic Changes in the Liver and Kidney of Rats Following Exposure to Sublethal Concentration of Potassium Cyanide
Background: Besides acute lethal cyanide poisoning, its chronic intoxication may also produce some pathologic effects on different tissues that precedes alterations in biochemical parameters. TheExpand
Biochemical Alterations Induced by Sublethal Cyanide Exposure in Common Carp (Cyprinus carpio)
TLDR
The observed alterations in some measured serum biochemical parameters would reflect tissue damages, especially in liver and kidney, due to chronic cyanide intoxication in common carp and may be used for better understanding the pathophysiology of this toxicity. 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
SUB-LETHAL TOXICITY OF POTASSIUM CYANIDE ON NILE TILAPIA (OREOCHROMIS NILOTICUS): BIOCHEMICAL RESPONSE
TLDR
The alterations in some of the measured serum biochemical parameters which reflect tissue damages, especially in liver and kidney, due to chronic cyanide intoxication in Oreochromis niloticus are clearly indicated and may be used for better understanding the pathophysiology of this toxicity and as an aid in the diagnosis of cyanide poisoning in fishes.

Evaluation of sublethal cyanide exposure on plasma biochemical profile in rats and possible protective effect of garlic.
Introduction Cyanide is a ubiquitous and potent cytotoxic agent known for its rapid lethal action and toxicity. The sources for cyanide poison are diverse, ranging from fruit pits, nuts, or seeds toExpand
Cyanide toxicokinetics: the behavior of cyanide, thiocyanate and 2-amino-2-thiazoline-4-carboxylic acid in multiple animal models.
TLDR
Concentrations of ATCA did not rise significantly above the baseline in the rat model, but rose quickly in rabbits and swine and then fell rapidly, generally following the relative behavior of cyanide, which reached a maximum in blood and declined rapidly in each animal model. Expand
SODIUM CYANIDE INDUCED BIOCHEMICAL AND HISTOPATHOLOGICAL CHANGES IN FRESH WATER FISH CYPRINUS CARPIO UNDER SUBLETHAL EXPOSURE
TLDR
It is suggested that appropriate measures be taken for detoxification of sodium cyanide before it is discharged in to streams, as it can compromise the survival of aquatic habitat consequently resulting in the disturbances of aquatic ecosystem. Expand
Evaluation of the health risks related to the presence of cyanogenic glycosides in foods other than raw apricot kernels
TLDR
Estimated mean acute dietary exposures to cyanide from foods containing CNGs did not exceed the ARfD in any age group, and it is unlikely that this estimated exceedance would result in adverse effects. 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
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
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
Effects of prolonged cyanide and thiocyanate feeding in rats.
TLDR
Both cyanide and thiocyanate caused decreased thyroid gland activity in young rats, particularly in the restricted groups, and it could not be determined whether these changes resulted from histotoxic anoxia or an alteration of oligodendroglial myelin metabolism. Expand
Physiological and biochemical changes associated with linamarin administration to rats.
TLDR
The results show that an oral dose of pure linamarin can produce physiological and biochemical changes in rats and does not require hydrolysis of linam Karin before ingestion or the simultaneous presence in food of the active linamarase enzyme. 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

TLDR
It would appear that chronic cyanide exposure may not predispose to diabetes in the presence of adequate protein intake, and the existence of variabilities in tissue susceptibilities to the toxic effect of chronic cyanides exposure is suggested. 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.
