||The embryotoxic and teratogenic effect of the coumarin preparation warfarin, the active ingredient of the Bulgarian rodenticide formulation Raton, was studied in rats. The prenatal toxicity of the preparation (peroral administration) was determined at doses of 8-0,04mg/kg (LD50 oral for rats, 16mg/kg). Warfarin, at all levels studied, was embryotoxic and teratogenic. It increased the level of embryonal lethality, provoked a characteristic haemorrhagic syndrome in the foetus, induced structural malformations of the hind limbs, internal hydrocephalus and haemorrhages in the brain tissue and abdominal cavity. Measures are proposed for the protection of women working in the production of coumarin rodenticides.
