OBJECTIVES Continuous inhalation of allethrin-based mosquito coil smoke may affect fertility, an aspect that has not received much attention. In this study, we attempt to understand the harmful effects on the male reproductive system caused by continuous exposure to allethrin-based mosquito coil smoke. METHODS Adult Wistar rats were allowed to inhale mosquito coil smoke for 15-180 days, and male reproductive tract tissues (caput, cauda, and testes) were collected. Using standard biochemical… CONTINUE READING
