Title Experimental study on the atherogenic effect of carbon disulfide

Bibliographic information Mar. 1983, Vol.26, No.6, p.471-476. Illus. 26 ref.
Abstract Carbon disulfide (CS2) administration at 10 and 50mg/m3 was followed by electrophoresis of serum proteins and qualitative and quantitative analysis of fibre structure in the myocardium and aorta of albino rats on a 30-day atherogenic diet. The combination of CS2 with the atherogenic factor intensified the changes in the cardiovascular system and serum proteins observed with the individual effect of both factors. Intoxication and decreased animal survival as well as alterations in serum, myocardium and aorta occurred at a concentration of 10mg/m3. Thus, CS2 has an atherogenic effect.
