    Nitrocellulose thinner (nct) is one of the commonly used industrial chemical solvents. Individuals involved in furniture, paint, automobile manufacture and repairs occupations, and those living around these workplace environments are at the risk of exposure to nct’s constituents ubiquitously released into the environment. Oral exposure to this solvent has been reported to cause haematotoxicity and hepatotoxicity in rat model. This study assessed the impact of withdrawal from exposure, on nct induced-haematotoxicity and hepatotoxicity in male albino Wistar rats. Four groups, of twelve male rats each, were orally exposed to graded concentrations of nct for 28 days. After the 28th day of exposure, six rats in each group were sacrificed and blood samples collected for nct inducedhaematotoxicity and hepatotoxicity analyses. The remaining six rats in each group were withdrawn from exp.. View More»
