Title Experimental data for the establishment of the maximum permissible concentration for the fungicide polymarcine in the workplace air
Original title Ėksperimental'nye materialy k obosnovaniju predel'no dopustimoj koncentracii polimarcina v vozduhe rabočej zony [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Sep. 1974, No.9, p.17-20. 8 ref.
Abstract Results of research in animals designed to determine the biological effects of the fungicide polymarcine (a complex of zinc ethylene-bis(dithiocarbamate), manganese ethylene-bis(dithiocarbamate) and ethylene thiuram disulfide) administered by the oral or percutaneous route or by inhalation. Acute and toxic poisoning is characterised by changes in the blood picture, enzyme disturbances (glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase, aldolase and alkaline phosphatase), and a reduction in immunobiological activity. A threshold limit value of 0.5mg/m3 is recommended for work with this fungicide.
