Título Effective treatment for paraquat poisoning in rats and its relevance to treatment of paraquat poisoning in man.
Información bibliográfica 7 Dec. 1974, p.569-571. Illus. 9 ref.
Resumen The relationships between gastrointestinal paraquat content and plasma and lung concentrations after oral administration of paraquat were studied in rats. On the basis of the findings a treatment was devised to prevent absorption of paraquat from the gut into the plasma and its accumulation in the lung. It consists of a stomach wash followed by 4 administrations of bentonite and purgatives. The relevance of this treatment to paraquat poisoning in man is discussed in view of the finding that slices of human lung accumulate paraquat in the same way as those of rat lung.
