Toxicology and pharmacology of the chemical warfare agent sulfur mustard
At the same time, Killea stressed that sulfur mustard
is a Class 1 chemical agent, which means it has few uses outside chemical warfare.
Operations to destroy the bulk sulfur mustard
agent began in October 2010 but were suspended in February 2011 when the destruction facility malfunctioned.
But it has been estimated by the French government that it includes more than 1,000 tons of chemical agents, including sulfur mustard
, VX and sarin gas.
Libya declared in 2004 it had tons of sulfur mustard
and other chemicals used to make chemical weapons.
More than seven percent of the Army's chemical and munitions stockpile is at ANAD, including rockets, artillery shells, mortars, land mines, ton containers (for storing bulk supplies of agent), nerve agents sarin (GB) and VX, and sulfur mustard

Brian Day, National Jewish Medical and Research Center, to test the ability of lipoic acid, dihydrolipoic acid, and thioredoxin to reverse or prevent pulmonary injury caused by sulfur mustard
Toxic manifestations of sulfur mustard
poisoning appear several hours after exposure (9), whereas Lewisite readily irritates the skin on contact (30).
The meeting took place one day after the OPCW announced that the Syrian government transported a fourth consignment of chemicals, a quantity of sulfur mustard
, to the port of Latakia where it was loaded onto a cargo ship and removed from the country.
According to an unclassified estimate by the French government, it includes more than 1,000 tons of ''chemical agents and precursor chemicals,'' including sulfur mustard
, VX and sarin gas
They were exposed to mustard agents, which includes sulfur mustard
and nitrogen mustard, and Lewisite, which is a blister-producing chemical that contains organic arsenic.
AEOL 10150 has also demonstrated efficacy in validated animal models for GI-ARS, chlorine gas exposure, and sulfur mustard
The canisters were filled with sulfur mustard
, also known as mustard gas, a chemical warfare agent that killed 500,000 soldiers in The Great War.
Significant progress continues in our development programs for AEOL 10150 as a Medical Countermeasure (MCM) for radiation, chlorine gas and sulfur mustard
gas exposure and AEOL 11207 as a potential therapy for Parkinson's disease and epilepsy," stated John L.
Mustard Gas: Mustard gas, or sulfur mustard
as it is more properly known, is one of the oldest chemical weapons, having caused 78% of the British gas casualties in WWI.
