Teratogenic action of bis(dichloroacetyl)diamine on rats: patterns of malformations produced in high incidence at time-limited periods of development.
Win 18,446, a bis(dichloroacetyl)diamine, is a drug that was previously shown to suppress spermatogenesis and to be an effective oral abortifacient in rats. The present study shows that the drug isExpand

Copper stimulation and inhibition of the rat uterus.
To clarify the possible effects of the copper IUD on the human myometrium the in vitro effects of copper ions and copper metal were studied on the rat uterus. Copper sulfate induced uterineExpand

Embryocidal action of a bis(dichloroacetyl)-diamine: an oral abortifacient for rats.
It is demonstrated that for rats N,N'-bis(dischloroacetyl)-1,8-octamethylenediamine (Win 18,446) is a highly efficient embryocidal N,N'-bis(dichloroacetyl)-1,8-octamethylenediamine It wasExpand
