Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are industrial chemicals that are long-lasting global environmental contaminants. PCBs have been reported to adversely affect reproduction in laboratory and wild animals by reducing the incidence of breeding and the survival rate of young. The present study was undertaken to determine the toxic potential of PCBs on in vitro fertilization (IVF) in the mouse. Aroclor 1221, 1254, and 1268, and 3, 3', 4, 4'-tetrachlorobiphenyl (TCB), a PCB congener, were added to… CONTINUE READING
