Título Neurotoxicological effect of small quantities of lindane - Animal studies.
Información bibliográfica 10 July 1974, Vol.33, No.2, p.153-162. Illus. 17 ref.
Resumen The early effects of low doses of lindane (2.5 to 50 mg/kg) on the functions of the central nervous system were studied in rats by means of learning tests. The results showed that these functional tests are suitable for the early detection of slight impairments of the nervous system, whereas liver function tests and histological examinations performed at the same time were negative. Therefore, physiological examination of persons exposed to lindane is recommended as a preventive measure. The neuurotoxicological methods may detect minimal pesticide contamination in the reversible phase when other less sensitive tests are negative.
