  • The LD50 of subcutaneously-injected sarin (GB: isopropyl methylphosphonofluoridate) in mice was 172 μg kg-1. Mice were treated with sarin at doses between 25 and 150 μg kg-1, administered subcutaneously. After sacrifice of the animals, the diaphragms were removed and stained for acetylcholinesterase activity and the presence of ionized calcium. Calcium was found in the diaphragms of those mice to which sarin had been administered at doses of 50 μg kg-1 or above. Calcium accumulation was not… CONTINUE READING
