||Measurement of urinary excretion of ethylenethiourea (ETU) in rats that have ingested Zineb
||Verifica della escrezione urinaria di etilentiourea (ETU) in ratti trattati con Zineb [in Italian]|
||May-June 1984, Vol.75, No.3, p.207-214. Illus. 26 ref.
||Urinary and faecal excretion of ETU, a metabolite of ethylene-bis-dithiocarbamic fungicides, was monitored in rats for 16 days after they were administered a single oral dose of Zineb. After 48h, 86% of the excreted ETU was in the urine, 14% in the faeces. Urinary excretion peaked at 24h after ingestion, at which time 52% of the total urinary ETU had been excreted. Low levels of ETU excretion continued in urine for the length of the study, by which time 5.1% of the Zineb received was excreted as urinary ETU. Faecal ETU disappeared after 3 days.
