The subacute inhalation toxicity of acrolein was examined in 4 groups of 20 hamsters, 12 rats and 4 rabbits each, exposed repeatedly to acrolein vapour at concentrations of 0, 0.4, 1.4 and 4.9 ppm (6 h/day, 5 days/week) for a 13-week period. The most important effects found at the highest level included mortality in rats, ocular and nasal irritation, growth depression and histopathological changes of the respiratory tract in each of the animal species exposed. The aberrations in the airways… CONTINUE READING
