Evaluation of estrogenic effects of municipal effluents to the freshwater mussel Elliptio complanata.
It is concluded that municipal effluents contain bio-available xenoestrogens at levels sufficient to elicit effects in freshwater mussels. Expand
Hypolipidaemic activity of alpha-asarone in mice.
Effects of TBT on Marine Organisms: Field Assessment of A New Site-Specific Bioassay System
A Portable Environmental Test System (PETS) was evaluated in San Diego Bay over a 7-month period using tributyltin (TBT) antifouling leachates. Three TBT concentrations (\bar{x} = 0.065, 0.077andExpand
Evaluation of the toxic and teratogenic potential of the anticonvulsant drug 4-hydroxy, 4-ethyl, 4-phenylbutyramide in mice.
HEPB treatment did not result in malformations of live fetuses or resorptions when the implantations were considered as the individual entity and the teratogenic potential of HEPB was investigated in mice after oral administration. Expand
Effect of Spirulina maxima consumption on reproduction and peri- and postnatal development in rats.
Spirulina maxima, an edible micro-organism useful in human nutrition, was examined for its effect on general reproductive performance and for peri- and postnatal toxicity in rats at levels of 0, 10,Expand
Subchronic toxicity study in rats fed Spirulina.
[Pharmacology and toxicology of Guatteria gaumeri and alpha-asarone].
The toxic effects of alpha-asarone in animals suggest caution in the use of this plant, and no teratogenicity was observed in pregnant rats during organogenesis but in mice slight fetal toxicity was manifested by hydrocephaly, skeletal defects and fetal weight retardation. Expand
[Teratogenic action of alpha-asarone in the mouse].
The embryotoxicity and teratogenicity of alpha-asarone were investigated in mice and the highest dose induced fetal malformations, mainly represented by hydrocephaly, extra-ribs, clubfeet and cleft lips. Expand
Tributyltin Effects on Juvenile Mussel Growth
Juvenile mussels (Mytilus edulis <20 mm) were exposed to three concentrations of tributyltin (TBT) in two site-specific, flow-through bioassays with unfiltered seawater. Mean TBT concentrations wereExpand
