Title Experimental study on Endodan for teratogenicity and embryotoxicity
Original title Eksperimentalno proučvane na endodan za teratogennost i embriotoksičnost [in Bulgarian]
Bibliographic information July 1984, Vol.9, p.88-95. Illus. 13 ref.
Abstract An experiment was carried out on albino rats for assessment of the effect, during gestation, of the fungicide endodan (ethylene-thiuram monosulfide) on the intrauterine and postnatal development of the progeny. A low teratogenic and embryotoxic activity was found after a single treatment with 1/2LD50 on the 13th day of gestation. The preparation has a pronounced cumulative effect on daily administration of 1/5, 1/10 and 1/20LD50, manifested by clinical symptoms and death of a part of the pregnant animals. Behavioural abnormalities were observed in the progeny but no changes in viability and weight gain during the postnatal period.
