Title Effects of the herbicide Ramrod on embryogenesis in white rats
Original title Văzdejstvie na herbicida ramrod vărhu embriogenezata na beli plăhove [in Bulgarian]
Bibliographic information 1975, Vol.1, No.1, p.57-60. 7 ref.
Abstract The acetamide Ramrod (1/5, 1/10, 1/20 and 1/40 of the LD50) was administered to 100 female rats during gestation. Embryonic mortality was increased, while foetal bodyweight and head-tail length were reduced. 1/40 of the LD50 had no effect on embryogenesis, while 1/5 and 1/10 had slight teratogenic effects.
