Immunotoxicity of bis(tri-n-butyltin)oxide in the rat: effects on thymus-dependent immunity and on nonspecific resistance following long-term exposure in young versus aged rats.

Abstract

To investigate whether immune function suppression observed in an earlier study after short-term bis(tri-n-butyltin)oxide (TBTO) exposure also occurred after long-term treatment, function studies for specific and nonspecific resistance were performed after exposure of weaned male rats to diets containing 0, 0.5, 5, or 50 mg TBTO/kg for 4-6 and 15-17 months… (More)
