Title Study on potential atherogenic hazard of the pesticide acetochlor
Original title Izučenie potencial'noj aterogennoj opasnosti pesticida acetohlora [in Russian]
Bibliographic information May 1988, No.5, p.84-85. 9 ref.
Abstract Biochemical and cytological changes in the cardiovascular systems of rabbits associated with exposure to the pesticide acetochlor suggested that the compound is atherogenic. When administered jointly with cholesterol, its apparent atherogenic action was intensified. It is suggested that a safety factor of 100 be used when setting standards for autochlor residues.
