Title Research on the cumulative effect of metathion
Original title Proučvanija vărhu kumulativnija efekt na metationa [in Bulgarian]
Bibliographic information 1975, Vol.18, No.2, p.149-153. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract Results of studies in white rats administered metathion in oral doses of 1/5, 1/10, 1/20 and 1/40 of the DL50 (470mg/kg) for 20 days. The cumulative effect was very marked with the highest dose, and absent with the lowest. Metathion can thus be classed among the classic organophosphorus compounds whose cumulative effect diminishes as the daily dose increases.
