Materials and methods

Type of study / information:
Type: other
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Whole-body exposure to o-dichlorobenzene vapours for 4 hours. Tubular toxicity and centrilobular liver demage were evaluated histochemically from the enumeration of damaged proximal tubules in cryostat kidney sections stained for alkaline phosphatase and the measurement of centrilobular glucose-6-phosphatase.
GLP compliance:

 Percentage decrease


  116  240 ± 11.6  177 ± 11.3*  26
  153  253 ± 5.7  139 ± 8.8*  45
  196  266 ± 17.0  121 ± 17.0*  55
  273  249 ± 7.2  81 ± 4.1*  68

a The exposure concentrations are the average of the three samples taken during each 15 min exposur period, with a coefficient of varaition of < 10%.

b The values given are the mean respiratory rate   ± SEM obtained from six mice.

* Signifcantly different from pre-exposure level: p < 0.05
