This is Dr. Afanasiev from St. Petersburg. I red your letter regarding 
possible dioxin intoxication of a friend of yours. Dioxin have a general 
toxic action, involving many functional systems of the human body. Of 
course CNS is not exclusion. I would suggest you to apply to the 
International Programme of Chemical Safety (IPCS) which will provide you 
with the detailed information about toxicokinetics and toxicodymanics of 
chronic digoxin intoxication. Anither way is to apply to the Micromedex, 
Inc. company, or to call to your Regional Poison Control Center and to get 
the current references.
I feel that is the best way to get the information about digoxin.
Yours, sencerely,
Vasily Afanasiev, MD
