Pharmacokinetics and neurotoxicity of dipterex in hens. A comparative study of administration methods.


We compared the tissue concentration of dipterex and the inhibition of the neuropathy target esterase (NTE) activity among groups of hens (n = 8 each) which were intravenously (i.v.), subcutaneously (s.c.) or orally (p.o.) administered the insecticide dipterex. The tissue concentrations of dipterex in the s.c. group were higher than those in the i.v. and p… (More)
