Título The effect of DDT on muscle dystrophy and its role in producing rest tremor.
Información bibliográfica 1973, Vol.24, No.4, p.297-302. 38 ref.
Resumen Communication to the Swedish-Yugoslav symposium on pesticides (Milocer, Yugoslavia, 4-8 Dec. 1972), describing a number of animal experiments which were conducted to discover and study the mechanism of tremor provoked by DDT and to elaborate a model of such tremor for further research. The results show that DDT significantly improves muscular function in an experimental model of muscular dystrophy; further research into the pharmacological effects of DDT might lead to its wider use as a therapeutic agent.
