Effect of monazite on body organs of rats






Environmental Research 13(3): 347-357

Effect of monazite on body organs of rats

Biochemical and histological alterations in lungs, liver and kidney of albino rats at different time intervals after an intratracheal administration of monazite, the chief source of Th and some rare earth elements of industrial significance, were investigated. The mild enzymatic and morphological changes observed in the lung suggest an inert behavior of the monazite dust towards this tissue. Biochemical alterations in liver and kidney indicate slight dissolution of some constituents of this naturally occurring mineral from the pulmonary tissue to other body organs.
