Title Influence of pesticides on pathogenesis and evolution of certain pathological processes
Original title Vlijanie pesticidov na vozniknovenie i razvitie nekotoryh patalogičeskih processov [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Mar. 1974, No.3, p.23-27. Illus.
Abstract It is an established fact that many pesticides containing organochlorine, organophosphorus and organomercury compounds or carbamates are cardiotoxic and hepatotoxic. This article presents and analyses the results of histopathological research on animals demonstrating that these pesticides aggravate certain pathological disorders of the cardiovascular system (coronary deficiency, myocarditis, atherosclerosis); they also (this is particularly true of chlorophos) aggravate liver damage caused by carbon tetrachloride.
