Example text

Mature, healthy rabbits are selected and acclimatized to laboratory conditions. The numbers of animals involved are small (three to five per test). Test animal handling, conditions of restraint and prior disease status are among many factors that may influence the test result. Another important factor is reuse. Animals may be reused even if a prior response has been observed, but both tolerance or increased sensitivity may interfere with future tests. , 1976, 1977; Van Dijk and Van de Voorde, 1977).

The objective of this paper is to discover some of the lessons that may be learnt from this process of development and acceptance. This is not intended to be a definitive review of the LAL test. , 1982~;Prior, 1990). 2 Endotoxin Endotoxin is a mixture of the lipopolysaccharide from the wall of Gram-negative bacteria, protein and other trace components (Elin and Wolff, 1982; Prior, 1990). Lipopolysaccharide is a complex mixture of molecules with molecular weights varying from 400 to 4000 kD (Raetz, 1990).

Even in the case of cyanide, there is little direct correlation between death of the animal and cell death in tissue culture. , 1991). , 1989). Under argon atmosphere-induced hypoxic conditions cultured cells survive cyanide exposure better than in air (Aw and Jones, 1989). Cultured cells can thus survive chemical or atmospheric hypoxia by using glycolysis, and the resultant reduction in dependence on mitochondrial respiration renders the cell less, not more, sensitive to cyanide poisoning. In vivo, the rapid death of the animal is not explained by general suppression of cellular respiration, leading to hypoxia.
