Abstract
Rats are exposed to 25, 50, 100 and 200ppm carbon-monoxide (630080) for up to 15 weeks and magnesium (7439954), manganese (7439965), zinc (7440666), copper (7440508), and iron (7439896) content in blood, lungs, heart, brain, liver, kidney, spleen, testes and thymus is used as indicator of the effect of the gas. Cadmium (7440439) and chromium (7440473) analyses are conducted on selected tissues. Results show that metals can be employed as an index of metabolic alteration produced by carbon-monoxide. Involvement of carbon- monoxide with host defense mechanisms, enhancement of phagocytic activity of macrophages, an increased antibody titer, and induced blood fibrinolytic activity are also demonstrated after the inhalation of carbon-monoxide.
