OBSERVATIONS ON SOME TISSUES OF MICE INJECTED WITH LAS SYNTHETIC DETERGENT FOR VARYING PERIODS FROM THE DAY OF BIRTH
Effects of chronic exposure to a synthetic detergent (LAS-SD) were studied in mice. Epilation and dermatitis usually occurred in animals given continued injections of SD. Adhesions between some organs were observed in those receiving injections of SD from the day of birth. Growth, reproduction and survival of the animals were not affected. Although some organs were increased in relative weight, histopathologic examinations of liver, kidney, adrenals and thyroid organs of treated mice revealed no evidence of poisoning.
