Resumen Reglone (20% diquat dibromide) is used as a herbicide and dessicant. This article gives the results of experiments with white rats, exposed to water aerosols containing various concentrations of Reglone to determine the LC50 (83mg/m3), the acute threshold concentration (9.9mg/m3) and the chronic threshold concentration (0.32mg/m3). In all instances the clinical picture of poisoning is characterised by bronchopulmonary lesions (catarrhal bronchitis and bronchiolitis, interstitial pneumonia, atelectasis and emphysema) and toxic involvement of the liver and kidneys. The authors ccnclude from their results that there is no risk of sequelae due to body accumulation of Reglone, and propose a temporary TLV of 0.1mg/m3.
