||Embryotoxic and teratogenic effects of benzene and alkylbenzene compounds
||A benzol és alkil-származékainak embriotoxikus és teratogén hatása [in Hungarian]|
||1986, Vol.32, No.7-9, p.146-166. Illus. 86 ref.
||Animal experiments involving female rats, mice and rabbits at or about the time they become pregnant. Exposure was by inhalation of different concentrations of benzene, toluene, o-, m-, p- and mixed xylenes, ethylbenzene, aromatol (a mixture of aromatic hydrocarbons) and clean air. On the whole, at a high enough exposure level, growth retardation or death of the foetus was noted, but teratogenic effects were found only for ethylbenzene and aromatol. Abortion was induced mostly in rabbits. A method is described for the determination of exposure levels and times at which no embryotoxic or teratogenic effects are found.
