To investigate the effects of cadmium on olfaction, two separate studies were conducted in which male adult rats were exposed to CdO, via inhalation, for 5 h per day, 5 days a week for 20 weeks. Target exposure values of 250 and 500 micrograms/m3 were measured at 200 and 325 micrograms/m3 for the low concentration in two experiments, and 550 and 660 micrograms/m3 for the high concentration. Prior to exposure, olfactory thresholds were obtained using a conditioned suppression technique. After 20… CONTINUE READING
