In utero exposure to nicotine and chlorpyrifos alone, and in combination produces persistent sensorimotor deficits and Purkinje neuron loss in the cerebellum of adult offspring rats
Abstract This study was carried out to investigate the effect of in utero exposure to the cholinotoxicants, nicotine and chlorpyrifos, alone or in combination on neurobehavioral alterations and neuronal morphology latter in adult age. In the present study, 90 days old (corresponding to a human adult age) male and female offspring rats were evaluated for…
Gene expression profiles of the rat brain both immediately and 3 months following acute sarin exposure§
Abstract We have studied sarin-induced global gene expression patterns at an early time point (15 min; 0.5 ? LD50) and a later time point (3 months; 1 ? LD50) using Affymetrix: Rat Neurobiology U34 chips in male, Sprague-Dawley rats and have identified a total of 65 (early) and 38 (late) genes showing statistically significant alterations…
Ill health following exposure to contaminated aircraft air: psychosomatic disorder or neurological injury? – MacKenzie Ross & J. Burdon
Cabin air on commercial aircraft is sometimes contaminated with hydraulic fluids, synthetic jet engine oils and combusted or pyrolised materials, and aircrew have been reporting ill health following fume events for many years. The purpose of this article is to raise awareness among physicians of the short- and long-term health effects that may develop after…
