Universally important organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) are para, para, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (pp-DDT), hexachloride
benzene (HCB), chlordane, heptachlor, aldrin, dieldrin, and endrin.
For example, chili extract has been shown to promote the development of stomach and liver tumors in BALB/c mice initiated by methyl (acetoxymethyl) nitrosamine and benzene hexachloride
. Capsaicin also has a cocarcinogenic effect on TPA-promoted skin carcinogenesis in vivo ; this is mediated through the transient receptor potential vanilloid subfamily number 1 and the tyrosine kinase epidermal growth factor receptor.
dorsalis populations have been found to be resistant to a range of chemical classes including organochlorine (dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, benzene hexachloride
, and endosulfan), organophosphate (acephate, dimethoate, phosalone, methyl-o-demeton, and triazophos), and carbamate insecticides (carbaryl) (Reddy et al.
Hindistan'da DDT ve benzene hexachloride
(BHC)'nin evlerde ve hayvan barinaklarinda kullaniminin 8 aya kadar kum sineginin etkin ergin kontrolunu sagladigi bildirilmis ve uygulama yapilan bircok bolgede birkac yil icerisinde leishmaniasis vakalarinin elimine oldugu bildirilmistir (62).
Daily surgical wound was dressed aseptically and Gamma Benzene Hexachloride
and Proflavine Hemisulphate with antiseptic cream (Lorexane (g)) was applied.
Pregnane X receptor agonists, such as androgens, dexamethasone, [micro]-benzene hexachloride
([micro]-BHC), and some other endocrine disruptors may induce CYP2C11 mRNA in males and females .
Lindane, also known as gamma- hexachloride
is a neurotoxin that interferes with GABA neurotransmitter function by interacting with the GABA receptor - chloride channel.
In organochlorines most of the cases are consumed, gama benzene hexachloride
(GBH) and DDT.
Testing discovered severe staphylococcal and herpetic skin infections, and an intoxication of herbicides, solvents, pesticides, mercury (both inorganic and, its most toxic form, organic), toxic metals--including silver--benzene, diesel, car exhaust fumes, hexachloride
, formaldehyde, hydrocarbons, methyl alcohol, DDT, and polyurethane.
Organophosphate trichlorophan (Kashara 1962) formalin (Putz and Bowen 1964) Lexone (Gopalkrishan 1964) and Benzene Hexachloride
(Hoffman and Mayer 1974) also listed as effective chemicals for Lernaea cyprinacea control.
DDT was introduced in early 1960s followed by benzene hexachloride
(BHC) but due to emergence of resistance against DDT and BHC in malaria vectors results in increase of transmission rates in Pakistan.
