  1. Development of an ICR mouse bioassay for toxicity evaluation in neurotoxic poisoning toxins-contaminated shellfish.

    Biomedical and Environmental Sciences 26(5):346 (2013) PMID 23611128

    To develop an ICR (female) mouse bioassay (MBA) for toxicity confirmation and evaluation of neurotoxins (brevetoxins)-contaminated shellfish. Brevetoxins (BTX-B) as a causative agent of neurotoxic shellfish poisoning (NSP) under different shellfish matrices were intraperitoneally injected at differe...
  2. Effects of dimethyl sulphoxide against liver injury caused by carbon tetrachloride in rats.

    Toxicology Mechanisms and Methods 14(3):167 (2004) PMID 20021143

    A single oral dose of 1.25 ml kg(-1) of carbon tetrachloride (CCl(4)) was sufficient to induce significantly elevated levels of serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) and serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT) together with signs of acute centrilobular necrosis and fatty accumulation in...
  3. Protective effects of N-acetylcysteine against carbon tetrachloride- and trichloroethylene-induced poisoning in rats.

    Environmental Toxicology and Pharmacology 14(3):109 (2003) PMID 21782669

    This research investigates the protective effect of N-acetylcysteine (NAC) against carbon tetrachloride (CCl(4))- and trichloroethylene (TCE)-induced hepatotoxicity in rats. A single dose of 1.25 ml/kg of 20% CCl(4) in corn oil, administered orally, or 20% TCE, administered intraperitoneally, produc...
  4. Solid-phase extraction clean-up of ciguatoxin-contaminated coral fish extracts for use in the mouse bioassay.

    Food Additives & Contaminants: Part A - Chemist... 26(2):236 (2009) PMID 19680895

    Florisil solid-phase extraction (SPE) cartridges were used for purifying ciguatoxin (CTX)-contaminated coral fish extracts, with the aim of removing extracted lipid but retaining optimal level of CTXs in the purified fractions. The CTX-containing fraction (target fraction) in fish ether extract was...
