In view of the possibility that ricin may be used as a bioweapon against human populations, we examined the pathological consequences that occur in mice after introduction of ricin into the pulmonary system. Intratracheal instillation of a lethal dose of ricin (20 microg/100 g body weight) resulted in a hemorrhagic inflammatory response in multiple organs… CONTINUE READING
