The Effects of Lindane on Rabbit Hemopoietic System: An Experimental Study

Lindane is a synthetic insecticidal agent used in agricultural as well as medical practice. In this experimental study, effects of
lindane were observed on bone marrow in rabbits. Ninety rabbits were divided in nine groups according to dose level. Low
peripheral blood counts and suppression of bone marrow were observed in six test animals. This suppression was related
neither to dose nor to duration of exposure to lindane.
