Gastric response to methyl methacrylate vapor.
Temple University School of Dentistry, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 1976 Mar; :1-3
This terminal progess report summarizes the experiments designed to determine or confirm the effects of methyl-methacrylate (80626) on the gastrointestinal system in dogs and rats. There is a direct action of methyl-methacrylate on the gastrointestinal motor effector systems. Significant blood chemical changes were observed in rats exposed to 116ppm of methyl-methacrylate vapor in air for six months. Similar concentrations for three months caused reductions of visceral and subcutaneous fat, and after three and six months liver damage was observed. (Grant No. R01-OH-00518)
