Evaluation of Benz[A]anthracene-induced pulmonary toxicity in Rattus norvegicus

Benz[a]anthracene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) commonly found in the environment, capable of inducing an inflammatory response that may lead to pulmonary toxicity. Due to a lack of knowledge regarding the signs and pathological damages caused by benz[a]anthracene toxicity, there is a need to investigate its effects in a rat model. The determination of the median lethal dose (LD50) involved nine rats using...

The relationships between metal (Pb, Cu, Cd and Cr) levels and the size of the Moroccan Atlantic Coast gastropod species (Patella rustica)

The metal (Pb, Cu, Cd, and Cr) concentrations in the soft tissues of the gastropod mollusc limpet (Patella rustica) from the Moroccan Atlantic Coast were measured. The relationships between limpets size and metal levels were investigated by linear regression analysis. This work was carried out to determine the bioaccumulation and relationships of some essential (Cu and Cr) and non-essential (Pb and Cd) metals in the...
