Toxicological index of paraquat: a new strategy for assessment of severity of paraquat poisoning in 128 patients



Toxicological index of paraquat: a new strategy for assessment of severity of paraquat poisoning in 128 patients



Forensic Science International 59(2): 85-87



A new assessment of the severity of paraquat poisoning in 128 patients has been developed. It involves toxicological index of paraquat and discriminant function score. This system not only allows a more accurate assessment of severity of the poisoning, but also provides a more reliable prediction of the outcome in an early stage for the purpose of forensic and clinical toxicology.
