Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The effect of exposure to particular xylene isomers at a concentration of 3000 ppm on rotarod performance in rats and the respiratory rate in mice was investigated. Rotarod performance was tested in rats immediately after termination of a 6-hour exposure, and the respiratory rate in mice was recorded during a short 6 minute exposure to individual xylene isomers. In both rats and mice the toxic effects of exposure to ortho- and meta-xylene were more pronounced than that of para-xylene.
