A complex toxicological study was carried out in relation to the hygienic standardization of the fungicide preparation Ridomil, whose forthcoming production in this country will be under the name Metalaxyl. The study was performed on sexually mature white rats of both sexes, at oral, dermal and inhalation exposure, acute, subacute and chronic experiments, according to the Bulgarian State Standard. Besides the routine toxicological studies were carried also studies for establishing the long-term… Expand
Light and Electron Microscopic Study of the Possible Protective Effect of Nigella Sativa on Metalaxyl Induced Hepatotoxicity in Adult Albino Rats
TLDR
The statistical analysis of biochemical assay of serum and liver tissue of metalxyl treated animals, showed significant increase in oxidative stress marker malondialdehyde (MDA) with significant decrease in antioxidants glutathione (GSH) and glutathion peroxidase (GPx). Expand
Ginger extract protects metalaxyl-induced histo- morphological and histochemical alterations in testes of albino mice
TLDR
Co-administration of aqueous extract of ginger improved the histological as well as the histochemical alterations induced by metalaxyl, which may be attributed to the antioxidant properties of ginger constituents. Expand
Biomarkers of effect in evaluating metalaxyl cocarcinogenesis. Selective induction of murine CYP 3A isoform.
TLDR
Northern blotting analysis with CYP3A cDNA biotinylated probe showed that, in the liver, the expression of this isozyme is regulated at the mRNA level, suggesting the cotoxic and cocarcinogenic potential of this fungicide. Expand
Apoptosis Related Protein Bax In Liver Of Metalaxyl Fungicide -Treated Mice: The Effect Of Antox
TLDR
Together treatment with antox and metalaxyl fungicide can improve the histological alterations and reduce apoptosis in liver of mice and this effect of antox may be attributed to its antioxidant properties. Expand
EVALUATION OF CYTOTOXIC AND GENOTOXIC POTENTIAL OF THE FUNGICIDE RIDOMIL IN ALLIUM CEPA L
The cytogenetic effects exerted by the systemic fungicide mefenoxam and copper hydroxide (the active ingredients of Ridomil Gold Plus 42,5 WP fungicide) were studied in root tips of Allium cepa L. AExpand
Safety Assessment of α-Amino Acids as Used in Cosmetics
TLDR

Occupational exposure to pesticides and bile tract carcinoma in men: results from a European multicenter case–control study
TLDR
This study does not rule out that pesticide exposure represents an occupational risk factor for extrahepatic biliary tract carcinoma, but no indication of a strong association was observed. Expand
Schätzung von Tumorrisiken anhand aus der Berufsbiografie abgeleiteten Expositionsvariablen
TLDR
This study does not rule out that pesticide exposure represents an occupational risk factor for extrahepatic biliary tract carcinoma, but no indication of a strong association was observed and the observed estimates of effects may be influenced by a lack of precise exposure assessment. Expand
