Extra-cranial diseases include metabolic disease such as liver failure, toxin ingestion like xylitol or bromethalin
rat poison, insulinoma (a tumor of the pancreas causing low blood sugar), infectious diseases like rabies and canine distemper virus, parasitic infection, and electrolyte derangements.
These are usually pellets or crystals that contain castor oil, fox urine, and the toxic chemicals bromethalin
and zinc phosphide.
Revenge[R] is palatable to mice, containing .01 percent bromethalin
bait that can kill mice in a single feeding.
On autopsy, remnants of bromethalin
(a rodent poison) were detected in his brain and liver.
This would not work for strychnine, vitamin D analogs, Bromethalin
, or zinc phosphide based poisons.
However, an initial laboratory analysis was negative for sodium fluoroacetate, fluoroacetamide, bromethalin
, strychnine, 1 ,3-difluoro, 2-propanol, and carbamate insecticides.
They have been shown to reduce cell membrane lipid peroxidation induced by spinal cord injury and bromethalin
in animal studies and to protect neurons from stress induced by peroxidation in a human in vitro study.
Following the initial survey, teams from the city Department of Housing treated all infested properties in the intervention areas, first with tracking powders containing bromodiolone (3-[3-(4[prime]-bromo [1,1[prime]-biphenyl]-4-yl)- 3-hydroxy-1-phenylpropyl]-4-hydroxy-2H-1-benzopyran-2-1), bromethalin
(n-methyl-2, 4-dinitro-n-(2,4,6-tribromophenyl) -6-(trifluoromethyl)benzenamine), and diphacinone (2-(diphenylacetyl)-1H-indene-1, 3-(2H)-dione).
A newer generation of mouse poison containing bromethalin
causes neurologic signs instead of internal bleeding, but can be life-threatening if ingested.
