Toxicity of tire debris leachates.
Data on the indicators of environmental impact of tire debris, originated from the tire abrasion on roads, are extremely scarce, while it is well known that tires may produce deleterious effects.Expand

Comparative teratogenicity of chlorpyrifos and malathion on Xenopus laevis development.
The embryotoxic potential of chlorpyrifos (CPF) and malathion (MTN), two organophosphorus insecticides (OPs), was evaluated by modified Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay-Xenopus (FETAX). CPF and MTNExpand

Impact of tire debris on in vitro and in vivo systems
BackgroundIt is estimated that over 80% of respirable particulate matter (PM10) in cities comes from road transport and that tire and brake wear are responsible for the 3–7% emission of it. Data onExpand

Axial-skeletal defects caused by Carbaryl in Xenopus laevis embryos.
Embryotoxic effects of Carbaryl (CB), a widely used carbamate insecticide, was evaluated by modified Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay-Xenopus (FETAX), coupled with a histopathological screening of theExpand

Tire debris organic extract affects Xenopus development.
Tire debris (TD) and its organic components were identified as a main source of PM10 atmospheric and water pollution. Because few data are available on the embryotoxic effects of TD organicExpand

Teratogenesis study of dioxane in rats.
The industrial solvent dioxane (1,4-diethylene dioxide) was evaluated for teratogenic potential in Sprague-Dawley rats. The compound was administered on days 6-15 of gestation by gavage (0, 0.25, 0.5Expand

Effect of method of administration on the teratogenicity of dinoseb in the rat
The herbicide dinoseb (DNB) was administered to pregnant CD rats during the organogenetic period (days 6–15 of gestation) by gastric intubation with the following methods: a) 2.5; 5; 10 or 15 mg/kgExpand

Paraquat embryotoxicity in the Xenopus laevis cleavage phase.
The high Paraquat (PQ, 1-1'-dimethyl-4,4'bipyridylium dichloride) embryotoxicity in Xenopus laevis has been shown to be due to its rapid reduction and instantaneous re-oxidation which produces aExpand

Lethality, teratogenicity and growth inhibition of heptanol in Xenopus assayed by a modified frog embryo teratogenesis assay-Xenopus (FETAX) procedure.
The frog embryo teratogenesis assay-Xenopus (FETAX), a powerful test for the presence of developmental toxicants, has been modified mainly by performing an in vitro fertilization and increasing theExpand
