Toxicology studies in Caenorhabditis elegans
Budd, Chloe Denisha (2008) Toxicology studies in Caenorhabditis elegans. MRes thesis, University of Nottingham.
The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans was established as a model organism to study in 1965. In this study, C.elegans are used as a model system in which to examine the possible mechanisms of toxicity caused in humans by the anti-malarial drugs quinine and chloroquine, as well as toxicity caused in rodents by furan and investigating the pharmacology of the insecticides DDT and deltamethrin and how they affect invertebrates.
