Project: Histological and histochemical study of skeleton muscles and peripheral nerves of rats and hens due to intoxication with some organophosphate compounds.

project duration
01-JAN-00 – 31-DEC-99
Recently, an "intermediate syndrome" in humans after intoxications with a limited number of organophosphate compound has been described. No animal model is known for this new entity. This experimental animal study will try to correlate this and otherneuro-myopathological entities due to specific organiphosphorous esters with time and dose dependent peripheral nerve and skeletal muscle histological changes in rats and hens.
