Abstract

The mouse footpad swelling test was used to clarify the possibility of the induction of local cellular reaction with cell suspension of mouse lungs treated with paraquat in a syngeneous animal. Among the inbred strains used, the highest, statistically significant cellular reactivity was observed in C3H/He strain mice. These results suggest indirect evidence of macrophage activation in the lung toxicity of paraquat.
