|Title:||Comparative effectiveness of Tiron (4,5-Dihydroxy benzene 1,3-disulphonic acid disodium salt) and CaNa2EDTA with time after beryllium poisoning|
|Abstract:||The efficacy of two chelating agents (Tiron and calcium disodium EDTA) in the treatment of beryllium induced blood biochemistry and hepatic histopathological alteration was investigated at different duration in female albino rats. Single administration of beryllium nitrate at a dose of 50 mg/kg (im) showed significant decrease in haemoglobin percentage, blood sugar level, protein contents and activity of alkaline phosphatase. On the contrary significant elevation was found in the activity of transaminases (AST and ALn. Tiron was found to be more effective than CaNa2EDTA in reducing the beryllium induced haematological alterations and histopathological lesions in liver. These findings were further confirmed by AAS thus, in which reduced beryllium body burden was seen in liver and blood with Tiron.|
