Intragastric administration of acute doses of Technical X-factor (ß-isomer free BHC, a byproduct obtained during separation of Lindane from Tech. BHC) carried in peanut oil elicited typical signs of central nervous system depression in adult rats. The computed oral LD5 0 values of X-factor were 4174 and 5673 mg/kg. body weight for male and female rats respectively indicating that its acute taxicity was of relatively low order compared to Tech. BHC. It is suggested that the low acute mammalian toxicity of X-factor could possibly be due to a direct antagonism of the delta isomer (present in larger proportion in X-factor) with the gamma isomer.
