Oral administration of the compound to Sprague-Dawley rats near Day 18 of pregnancy was shown to delay the onset of parturition, prolong labor, and induce dystocia, with a concomitant large increase in perinatal mortality. Exposure during Days 8-16 was without effect, whereas treatment in the Day 18-20… CONTINUE READING
