Identification of hypoglycemia in mice as a surrogate marker of ricin toxicosis.

Abstract

PURPOSE In an effort to develop a non-lethal model of ricin toxicosis, we studied the biochemical effects of the administration of ricin in mice. METHODS Mice received an intraperitoneal injection of ricin toxin, after which a panel of 21 biochemical parameters was determined. Effect of ricin administration on blood glucose concentration was studied in… (More)
