Assessment of embryo/fetotoxicity and teratogenicity of azadirachtin in rats.


To evaluate the potential effect of exposure to azadirachtin technical 12% throughout major organogenesis, rats were fed orally with 500, 1000 and 1500 mg/kg/day azadirachtin on gestation days 6-15 and examined for evidence of embryo/fetotoxicity and teratogenic effects. Technical azadirachtin at different doses did not produce any significant adverse… (More)
