D-Mannitol, a specific hydroxyl free radical scavenger, can reduce the developmental toxicity of hydroxyurea in rabbits; it has thermal properties and could be as a Phase Change Material (PCM) for latent heat storage system; it is a potential diagnostic marker for aspergillosis. D-mannitol has neuroprotectant effect in reducing the sensory neurological disturbances seen in ciguatera poisoning, it does not act purely as an osmotic agent to reduce swelling of nerves, but involves a more complex action dependent on the Na(v) channel subtype, possibly to alter or reduce toxin association.
