Title Study on chromosomal mutagenicity of Fundazol 50 WP
Original title A Fundazol 50 WP kromoszóma mutagenitásának vizsgálata [in Hungarian]
Bibliographic information 1976, Vol.20, No.1, p.74-83. Illus. 21 ref.
Abstract The mutagenic effects of Fundazol 50 WP (methyl 1-butylcarbamoyl-2-benzimidazolecarbamate) were studied in vivo and in vitro. The peripheral blood of workers producing the fungicide was analysed to determine exposure; there was no mutagenesis. While there was no effect on mature rats, doses of 200 and 500mg/kg/day had considerable mutagenic effects on foetal rat tissue.
