Symptoms following ingestion include diarrhoea, bloody stools, vomiting, frothing at the mouth, skin eruptions, cyanosis, apathy, irregular pulse, paralysis, respiratory distress and possibly death. Local application to the eye or tongue produces inflammation and production of tears or saliva. No specific antidote is known. Some laboratory animals develop cellular immunity, others hypersensitivity, following repeated small doses. (See also: ichthyohemotoxic fishes, ichthyohemotoxin, fish poisoning)
