Nephrotoxicity of CCA-treated wood: A comparative study with As(2)O(5) and CrO(3) on mice.

Abstract

The purpose of this work was to assess the acute toxicity on male mice to a chromated copper arsenate (CCA) solution, a widespread wood preservative used in building industry until 2002. Animals were subcutaneously injected with CCA (7.2mg/kg arsenic and 10.2mg/kg chromium per body weight), CrO(3) (10.2mg/kg), As(2)O(5) (7.2mg/kg) and NaCl (0.9%) per se… (More)
