Accumulation of arsenic in blood and urine of occupationally exposed forestry workers applying silvicides in the Siuslaw Forest area, 1971


, : Accumulation of arsenic in blood and urine of occupationally exposed forestry workers applying silvicides in the Siuslaw Forest area, 1971. Progress Report Environmental Health Science Centre: 235

During a 12-week period, 24-h urine samples of workers exposed to dimethylarsinic acid were found to contain arsenic. Accumulated arsenic was eliminated rapidly following withdrawal. The concentration of arsenic in whole blood was not a sensitive indicator of exposure. Since no worker complained of illness during the study, threshold excretion values were not established.

Many of the effects thought to be due to angiotensin II (Ang II) are due to the release/formation of endothelin (ET). We tested whether Ang II elicits its positive inotropic effect (PIE) by the action of endogenous ET-1 and the role played by the...

The maximal level of the SOS-response was proportional to the UV...
