Title Teratogenic effects of noise and cadmium in mice: does noise have teratogenic potential?
Bibliographic information June 1993, Vol.39, No.2, p.237-245. 25 ref.
Abstract The teratogenicity of combined exposure to noise and cadmium was studied in mice. Although combined treatment with cadmium and noise resulted in an increase in total percentages of malformed foetuses compared to the same dose of cadmium alone, the interactions between cadmium and noise showed no synergistic effect on teratogenicity. The magnitude of teratogenicity due to noise is much weaker than that of cadmium, and is therefore easily masked by that of cadmium in statistical tests of the significance of differences.
