Rats were exposed to xylene, to n-hexane, or to xylene together with n-hexane, each solvent 1000 p.p.m. (1000 + 1000 p.p.m. in mixed exposure), 18 hr/day, 7 days/week during 61 days. Neurophysiological recordings were made 2 days, 4 months, and 10 months after the end of exposure. Exposure to n-hexane alone, or xylene alone, caused a slight loss of auditory sensitivity as recorded by auditory brainstem response 2 days after the exposure. Exposure to n-hexane together with xylene caused… CONTINUE READING
