Abstract:

This study investigated the lethal interaction of pyridostigmine bromide PB, permethrin, and DEEr when given to adult male rats by gavage. The study was separated into two phases. The first Phase I determined the acute oral lethal dose-response relationship of each compound with the vehicle, propylene glycol. The second Phase II was divided into two portions. One portion positive control was a dose-response study using probit units obtained from phase I LD 16. 30, 50, 70, and S4. Dosage solutions for the second interaction portion of phase II contained the calculated LDl6 additive l,D16 of two compounds while the concentration of the third compound was varied.
