Continuous hypoxia attenuates paraquat-induced cytotoxicity in the human A549 lung carcinoma cell line.
 

Author(s): Hoon Kim, Suk Woo Lee, Kyung Min Baek, Jung Soo Park, Jin Hong Min

Journal: Exp. Mol. Med.. 2011 Sep;43(9):494-500.

 

Paraquat (1,1'-dimethyl-4,4'-bipyridinium dichloride; PQ), an effective and widely used herbicide, was commercially introduced in 1962. It is reduced by the electron donor NADPH, and then reduced PQ transfers the electrons to molecular oxygen, resulting in the production of reactive ...

Pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate attenuates paraquat-induced lung injury in rats.
 

Author(s): Xiuli Chang, Chunfeng Shao, Qing Wu, Qiangen Wu, Min Huang, Zhijun Zhou

Journal: J. Biomed. Biotechnol.. 2009 ;2009():619487.

 

Paraquat (PQ) has been demonstrated that the main target organ for the toxicity is the lung. This study aimed to investigate the potential protective effect of PDTC on the PQ-induced pulmonary damage. Fifty-four rats were divided into control, PQ-treated and PQ+PDTC-treated groups. ...

Prospects for treatment of paraquat-induced lung fibrosis with immunosuppressive drugs and the need for better prediction of outcome: a systematic review.
 

Author(s): M Eddleston, M F Wilks, N A Buckley

Journal: QJM. 2003 Nov;96(11):809-24.

 

Acute paraquat self-poisoning is a significant problem in parts of Asia, the Pacific and the Caribbean. Ingestion of large amounts of paraquat results in rapid death, but smaller doses often cause a delayed lung fibrosis that is usually fatal. Anti-neutrophil ('immunosuppressive') ...
