The purpose of this study was to determine changes in the blood of pharaoh quails after Ekatin intoxication, to define the duration of disturbances caused by intoxication and to examine possible sex differences in the birds' reaction to intoxication. It was found that Ekatin reduced the number of erythrocytes, haemoglobin level and haematocrit value, increased erythroblast and reticulocyte numbers and increased the osmotic resistance of blood cells. It was shown that this pesticide caused… Expand

Blood morphology in quails after poisoning with fenitrothion.
TLDR
In males, changes in the blood appeared far earlier than in females and they underwent compensation earlier, i.e. 3 weeks after intoxication the majority of the haematological parameters reached values similar to those of the controls. Expand
Stilbestrol as a factor modifying the toxicity of Ekatin for the Pharaoh quail (Coturnix coturnix Pharaoh). I. Young birds.
TLDR
The high heterophilic leucocytosis in birds receiving stilbestrol is evidence that this hormone causes by an increased release of corticoids, hyperplasia of the granulopoietic tissue in the bone marrow and depresses the marrow barrier for heterophils. Expand

Abstract INTRODUCTION HEMATOLOGICAL studies on chickens have long been hampered by the lack of a quick, readily applicable, and quantitative method for the enumeration of the leucocytes. This problemExpand
The influence of age on the toxicity and metabolism of methyl parathion and parathion in male and female rats.
TLDR
There was a gradual decrease in susceptibility to poisoning by both insecticides with increasing age up to 35–40 days for both sexes, consistent with a hypothesis that changes in LD50 values of methyl parathion and parathions with age are due to changes in rates of metabolism of the oxygen analogs.

A comparative pharmacological and toxicological study of organic phosphate-anticholinesterase compounds.
TLDR
The mechanism of death appears possibly to be due primarily to peripheral inhibition of cholinesterase in the muscles, leading to respiratory paralysis, anoxia and terminal convulsion, and can be antidoted by atropine. Expand

TLDR
LD50 values for rats treated by the dermal route with parathion or dichlorvos and restrained so as to prevent the possibility of oral or respiratory exposure were not significantly different from those values in rats treated according to the procedure used routinely in this laboratory. Expand
