Abstract

Pesticide toxicology currently focuses mainly on two areas: long-term effects of given compounds and cocktail effects of chemicals, including combined effects of pesticide active ingredients with their adjuvants, as seen in the case of glyphosate-based herbicides. In this study surface water pollution in an agricultural region of Hungary by glyphosate was determined by ELISA method, and cytotoxic effects on HEK293 and NE-4C cells by glyphosate, its formulated herbicide (ROUNDUP® ) and adjuvant (polyethoxylated tallowamine, POEA) were compared. ROUNDUP and POEA were found to be equitoxic at short exposures (LC50: 10-15 ng/ml in 6 hrs), while glyphosate occurred to be of 500-750-fold less toxicity.
