The study of toxicity of two local beverage has been carried out by determination of LD50 of Abu-Nuas and Asria. The results exhibited that administration of ascending doses of each of these beverage caused a toxocological and behavioural abnormality in the treated albino laboratory mice. The calculated LD50 for Abu-Nuas and Asria was 0.5 and 0.06 ml/gm respectively.

    Oral administration of L-2-chloropropionic acid (L-CPA) to rats either as a single dose (750 mg/kg) or daily doses (250 mg/kg per day for 3 days) produces selective necrosis to the granule cell layer of the cerebellum. As part of a study to understand the mechanism of this selective toxicity, we...
