Title Experimental data concerning the effects of DDT and Sevin on the pathogenesis of cholesteric atherosclerosis
Original title Nekotorye eksperimental'nye dannye o vlijanii DDT i sevina na razvitie holesterinovogo ateroskleroza [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Sep. 1973, No.9, p.41-45. Illus. 2 ref.
Abstract Results of animal experiments carried out to elucidate the physiological and biochemical mechanisms (lipid metabolism) which form the pathogenic basis of atherosclerosis caused by the pesticides DDT and Sevin (1-naphthyl-N-methylcarbamate). The comparative study of the morphopathological and histochemical changes in the aorta and coronary heart vessels showed that the evolution of atherosclerosis is strongly accelerated by the presence of these pesticides.
