Exposure to phosgene has been shown to cause severe and life-threatening pulmonary edema. There is evidence that successful treatment of phosgene-induced acute lung injury may be related to increased antioxidant activity. Acetylenic acids such as 5,8,11,14-eicosatetraynoic acid (ETYA) have been...
The purpose of this study was to assess the bioavailability and pulmonary toxicity of ZnCdS in rats. Groups of 30 male Fischer 344 rats each were anesthetized and dosed via intratracheal instillation with 5 mg of either ZnCdS, quartz (positive control), or titanium dioxide (TiO 2 , negative...
This study assessed the association between ambient PM 10 pollution and daily hospital admissions for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Reno-Sparks, Nevada, for the period 1990-1994. All three hospitals in the region were included. There was a total of 3115 admissions for COPD...
Because of the interest attendant to establishing an 8-h ozone (O 3 ) federal air quality standard, acute pulmonary function responses to prolonged (6.6 to 8 h) O 3 exposure between 0.08 and 0.24 ppm have been examined in chamber studies. Given time constraints for O 3 concentration changes in...
A method is presented for calculating the dissolution rate constant of a borosilicate glass fiber in the lung, as measured in vitro, from the oxide composition in weight percent. It is based upon expressing the logarithm of the dissolution rate as a linear function of the composition. It was...
Aqueous dispersion resin (ADR) is a water-based acrylate copolymer designed to allow a range of ethanol concentrations for hair-spray formulations. A series of inhalation (whole-body) aerosol toxicity studies, including acute, 9-day, and 90-day exposures, was conducted to determine any...
