Title Experimental data on the gonadotoxic effect of Nemagon
Original title Ėksperimental'nye dannye o gonadotoksičeskom dejstvii nemagona [in Russian]
Bibliographic information June 1975, No.6, p.101-102.
Abstract Nemagon (1,2-dibromo-3-chloropropane) is used as a nematocide for soil dressing in market gardening. Tests on white rats show that one-time doses of 100mg/kg and repeated doses of 10mg/kg have gonadotoxic effects. Damage to the genital organs involves their hormonal functions and causes dysfunction of spermatogenesis and of the oestrous cycle.
