  1. 1. Cyanide and central nervous system : a study with focus on brain dopamine

    Author : Gudrun Cassel; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CNS; cyanide; dopaminergic system; convulsions; receptor binding; tyrosine hydroxylase; monoamine oxidase; extracellular release; inositol phosphate; GABA; GAD;

    Abstract : The brain is a major target site in acute cyanide intoxication, as indicated by several symptoms and signs. Cyanide inhibits the enzyme cytochrome oxidase. This inhibition causes impaired oxygen utilization in all cells affected, severe metabolic acidosis and inhibited production of energy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cyanide in breath as a marker for cyanide poisoning

    Author : Kristin Stamyr; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Approximately 120 people die every year due to fires in Sweden. A majority of the fire victims die due to toxic fire gases. Carbon monoxide is often thought to be the major cause of death. Still, another very toxic fire gas, hydrogen cyanide, is formed when materials containing nitrogen burn, e. READ MORE
