This review highlights various aspects of a number of experimental myological alterations, induced by different chemical toxicants, including anticholinesterase, colchicine, vincristine, chloroquine, tetanus toxin, botulinum toxin, reserpine and emetine. Despite their chemical diversity and mechanism(s) of action, it is evident from the data discussed here that remarkably different toxic agents exert quite similar effects and induce toxic myopathies. The latter include preferential involvement… CONTINUE READING
