Pathological changes in the central nervous system in two strains of mice (BALB/c and C57BL/6) and two strains of rats as a result of trimethyltin (TMT) intoxication were compared. Both strains of mice were administered with trimethyltin chloride at a dosage of 3.0 mg TMT-C1/kg b.w. while both strains of rats were exposed to 7.5mg TMT-C1/kg b.w. Animals were sacrified at the time of development of observable neurological signs (tremor, aggression): 2 days for both strains of mice, 3 days for Long Evans (LE) rats, and 5 days for Sprague Dawley (SD) rats. It was found that there were both species and strain differences in TMT toxicity.
