Title Proposed threshold limit values (TLV) of zineb in air based on animal experiments
Original title Ėksperimental'nye materialy k obosnovanija predel'no dopustimoj koncentracii cineba v vozduhe rabočih pomeščenij [in Russian]

Abstract Description, with comments, of animal experiments carried out to ascertain the toxic effects of inhaled zineb. The functional disturbances observed in various body systems as a result of breathing zineb concentrations of 200, 20 and even 5mg/m3 is shown in a table. Research was also carried out on the embryo of rats. In view of the gonadotoxic and embryotoxic effects of zineb, an atmospheric TLV of 0.5mg/m3 is recommended for this compound.
