Abstract:
This thesis is centered on the paper, Chronic Low-Level Arsenite Exposure through Drinking Water Increases Blood Pressure and Promotes Concentric Left Ventricular Hypertrophy in Female Mice. It was published in Toxicological Pathology on January 3, 2012 and represents a culmination of work done by Pablo Sanchez-Soria, Derrick Broka, Dr. Todd D. Camenisch, and myself (Sarah Lian Monks). My research, contribution, and specific participation are noted and precede the article, which was a culmination of work done over approximately a year and a half. Pablo Sanchez-Soria is a graduate student in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the primary author I worked under. The key results of the paper show arsenic induced left ventricular hypertrophy, and elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressure in exposed mice.
