||Characteristics of the toxic action of cyclofos under conditions of continuous and intermittent exposure
||Osobennosti toksičeskogo dejstvija ciklofosa v uslovijah monotonnogo i intermittirujuščego vozdejstvija [in Russian]|
||Aug. 1986, No.8, p.42-44. Illus. 4 ref.
||Continuous intratracheal administration of cyclofos caused a more pronounced toxic effect than intermittent administration did. Inhibition of the monooxygenase enzyme system of the liver and lungs was observed on continuous exposure, and induction of this system with more evident changes in lungs on intermittent exposure. The results were used as a basis for a MAC for cyclofos in workplace air for agriculture of 0.5mg/m3 (vapour + aerosol), with indication "penetrates through skin; hazard class 2".
