A short handbook of toxicology


, : A short handbook of toxicology. A short handbook of toxicology Kratkoe rukovodstvo po toksikologii 340p Illus

The book, intended for a wide circle of physicians, consists of an introduction and 3 parts. Part 1 (General) gives the methods of studying persons suspected of being under the action of poisons, methods for studying animals in toxicological experiments, the methods by which poisons act on animals (inhalation, application to the skin, gastroenteral, intravenous, intraperitoneal, intramuscular, subcut., application of the poison into a wound, and into the conjunctival sac of the eye), and the rules for precautions during work in a toxi-cological laboratory. In part 2, which is devoted to special toxi-cology, there are discussions of the effects of poisons with neuro-paralytic activity ("nerve gases"), poisons with general poisonous action (cyanides), those acting through skin absorption which causes ulcers, those acting through respiration (phosgene, diphosgene), and carbon monoxide. Special chapters include the use in poisoning of O therapy and artificial respiration. Part 3 contains data on protection against weapons of mass contamination and sanitary-chemical defense. It consists of the following chapters: the means of protection against weapons of mass contamination (anti-gases, protective skin covering); indications of poisonous substances; radioactive contamination of a locality, radiation reconnaissance, radiometric and dosimetric inspection; degassing and deactivation; and sanitary treatment.

Physicochemical properties of proteins always guide to determine the quality of the protein structure, therefore it has been rigorously used to distinguish native or native-like structure from other predicted structures.

The wild-type NAD+-dependent malic enzyme (dme) gene of Rhizobium (now Sinorhizobium) meliloti was cloned and localized to a 3.1 kb region isolated on the cosmid pTH69. This cosmid complemented the symbiotic nitrogen fixation (Fix-) phenotype of R...

The return of learned fear is an important issue in anxiety disorder research since an analogous process may contribute to long-term fear maintenance or clinical relapse. A number of studies demonstrate that mPFC and hippocampus are important in t...
