Abstract No cases of accidental poisoning have been reported as a result of occupational exposure. Skin sensations, reported by a number of authors to have occurred during field studies, generally lasted only a few hours and did not persist for more than one day after exposure. Neurological signs were not observed. General medical and extensive clinical blood-chemistry studies, and electrophysiological studies on selected motor and sensory nerves in the legs and arms did not show any abnormalities.
