Methiocarb is an N-methylcarbamate insecticide used worldwide in agriculture and health programs. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible effects of methiocarb to induce lipid peroxidation (LPO) in tissues of male Wistar rats following single and repeated oral exposures. Animals were divided into six different groups, and methiocarb was administered by orally at doses 25, 10, and 2 mg/kg body weight for 1, 5, and 28 days, respectively. Liver, kidney, brain, and testis tissues were… CONTINUE READING
