Abstract

Abstract 1,1-Dichloro-2,2-bis( p-chlorophenyl) ethylene (DDE); 2,2-bis( p-chlorophenyl) acetic acid (DDA); bis( p-chlorophenyl)methane; 4,4′-dichlorobenzhydrol; 4,4′-dichlorobenzophenone; chlorobenzene, and p-chlorobenzoic acid given orally and glutamine given intravenously to rats did not protect the animals against a pentylenetetrazole convulsive dose of 80 mg/kg given subcutaneusly. None of these substances could explain the weak anticonvulsive effect of DDT which develops 2 or 3 days after its oral administration.
