Reproductive responses of male fathead minnows exposed to wastewater treatment plant effluent, effluent treated with XAD8 resin, and an environmentally relevant mixture of alkylphenol compounds.

Aquat Toxicol 2007 Apr 28;82(1):36-46. Epub 2007 Jan 28.

U.S. Geological Survey, 3215 Marine Street, Boulder, CO 80303, USA.

On-site, continuous-flow experiments were conducted during August and October 2002 at a major metropolitan wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) to determine if effluent exposure induced endocrine disruption as manifested in the reproductive competence of sexually mature male fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas). The fathead minnows were exposed in parallel experiments to WWTP effluent and WWTP effluent treated with XAD8 macroreticular resin to remove the hydrophobic-neutral fraction which contained steroidal hormones, alkylphenolethoxylates (APEs), and other potential endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs). The effluent composition varied on a temporal scale and the continuous-flow experiments captured the range of chemical variability that occurred during normal WWTP operations. Read More

Protection by turmeric and myrrh against liver oxidative damage and genotoxicity induced by lead acetate in mice.

Basic Clin Pharmacol Toxicol 2006 Jan;98(1):32-7

Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Alexandria Univerity Research Development, Alexandria, Egypt.

The effects of lead acetate in the diet (0.5% w/w) on reduced GSH, activity of phase II metabolizing enzyme glutathione S-transferase (GST), lipid peroxidation in liver homogenate and bone marrow chromosomes of mice simultaneously supplemented with powdered turmeric and myrrh for 8 weeks were investigated. Five groups of Swiss male albino mice, each of 30 mice, the first group received a basal diet and served as negative control, the second group received basal diet supplemented with lead acetate only and served as positive control.

[Lethal mercury poisoning due to ingestion of merthiolate].

Rev Hosp Clin Fac Med Sao Paulo 1990 Sep-Oct;45(5):216-8

UTI de Choque Hospital das Clínicas e Laboratório de Pesquisa Básica LIM HC/FMUSP.

A case of mercurial poisoning caused by ingestion of an organic mercurial compound, thimerosal, found in local antiseptic solutions. The clinical picture consisted of grave neurological symptoms which were not reversed by penicillamine and resin administration despite rapid plasma level reduction of mercury. We call attention to this case because of the widespread availability of antiseptic solutions containing mercurial compounds and alcohol. Read More

Imipramine poisoning in a child: lack of efficacy of resin hemoperfusion.

Pediatr Emerg Care 1985 Dec;1(4):201-4

A three-year-old boy ingested up to 1,500 mg of the tricyclic antidepressant imipramine (Tofranil).

Evaluating exposures to plants.

Clin Lab Med 1984 Sep;4(3):603-14

Most clinical problems due to plant exposures result from experimentation with or overt abuse of plant parts and extracts. Plant exposures may present as complex pharmacologic problems that challenge the diagnostic and therapeutic skills of the physician. Although specific physiologic antagonists (antidotes) may exist for specific intoxications, basic decontamination and supportive techniques are often all that may be offered. Read More

Evaluating exposures to plants.

Emerg Med Clin North Am 1984 Feb;2(1):133-44

Exposures to plants generate an exceptional amount of public concern, especially plant ingestions by children. Most clinical problems, however, involve older age groups as a result of experimentation with or overt abuse of plant parts and extracts. Of mounting concern is the sometimes uninformed and massive use of herbal preparations, currently widely available and in popular vogue. Read More

Benefit of hemoperfusion in acute theophylline intoxication.

J Toxicol Clin Toxicol 1984 ;22(5):411-24

Charcoal and resin hemoperfusion or hemodialysis can accelerate theophylline elimination. Their benefit in the treatment of poisoned patients has been accepted on the basis of case reports. We reviewed the treatment of 26 patients with acute theophylline intoxication to determine how much of an effect hemoperfusion or hemodialysis had on the hospital course and outcome of the overdose.

Clinical and immunologic evaluation of trimellitic anhydride workers in multiple industrial settings.

J Allergy Clin Immunol 1982 Jul;70(1):15-8

This article described our clinical and immunologic experience in assessing workers exposed to trimellitic anhydride (TMA) in three industrial settings. Since 1977 we have had engaged in a prospective study of workers involved at the site of manufacture of TMA. These studies demonstrate that serologic measurements of total antibody to trimellityl human serum albumin (TM-HSA) and IgE antibody to TM-HSA are predictive of the development of an immunologically mediated respiratory illness and are useful in monitoring workers removed from TMA exposure, in identifying asymptomatic workers who may be at risk in the future, and in defining the nature of sensitization of the work force.
