Delayed neurotoxicity in hens was reported after the administration of several chlorinated alkyl phosphates. Neurotoxicity increased in a homologous series with the size and/or hydrophobic nature of substituents. In the present study the neurotoxicities of two commercial flame retardants, Fyrol PCF [tri(2-chloropropyl) phosphate] and Fyrol CEF [tri)beta-chloroethyl) phosphate], were compared in adult White Leghorn hens. When Fyrol PCF (10 ml/kg neat) was administered orally to four hens, no… CONTINUE READING
