SummaryThe effect of phenobarbital and phenylbutazone treatment on the renal damage induced by the toxic mushroomCortinarius speciosissimus was studied in female rats. Phenobarbital sodium was given in drinking water (0.05% solution) for 11 days prior to the administration of mushroom. Phenylbutazone was given s.c. in doses of 50 and 100 mg/kg 1 h before the mushroom administration. Homogenized mushroom was given orally by stomach tube at a dose of 250 mg dried mushroom/kg body weight.It was… Expand
Human and experimental toxicology of orellanine
TLDR
This work aims to review about Cortinarius species, including epidemiological studies, chemical structure, toxicokinetics, toxic doses, mechanisms of toxicity, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment options. Expand
Mushroom poisoning caused by species of the genus Cortinarius fries
TLDR
Pharmacokinetic experiments on the nephrotoxic bipyridines suggest that haemoperfusion is a rational therapy of intoxicated persons, even several days after mushroom ingestion, which is comparable to orellanine toxicity. Expand

TLDR
Both in males and in females, the kidneys were the only organs showing macroscopical changes in Cortinarius speciosissimus toxins, and sex differences in renal damage were observed in the area of the inner cortex. Expand

TLDR
A high activity of arginine residue cleaving aminopeptidase was observed in the inflammatory focuses located in the outer medullary zone, showing the important role of this enzyme in kidney inflammation. Expand
