A geographic information assessment of exposure to a toxic waste site and development of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE): Findings from the buffalo lupus project

The Buffalo Lupus Project was a community-based participatory research partnership formed to address the relationship between an identified hazardous waste site and high rates of lupus and other autoimmune diseases in the surrounding community. Most cases identified began experiencing symptoms and were diagnosed in the periods when the site was inactive. Trends suggest that the impact of the site was more likely due to...

Effects of parathion on cardiac rate, ventilatory frequency and hemolymphatic gas levels in the estuarine crab Neohelice granulata (Decapoda, Brachyura)

Adult crabs Neohelice granulata were exposed for 96 h to 0.125 mg/L of parathion under complete submersion. Crabs were then exposed to air for 6 h (emersion period) to be finally re-submerged. Cardiac rate and ventilatory frequency, as well as hemolymphatic pH, pCO2 and pO2 were measured at different times throughout the experiment. Cardiac rate was significantly lower in crabs exposed to parathion,...

Toxicologic characterization of a novel explosive, triaminoguanidinium-1-methyl-5-nitriminotetrazolate (TAG-MNT), in female rats and in vitro assays

Sustainable use of training ranges requires the development of compounds that have a minimal impact on the environment when used in a weapon system.  Triaminoguanidinium-1-methyl-5-nitriminotetrazolate (TAG-MNT) is a novel, explosive, military compound of interest for application in some weapon systems.  Little is known of its toxicologic properties.  To ensure the health of potentially exposed personnel...
