Synthetic pyrethroids are considered to be safe over other insecticides. Many of the newest pyrethroids lack ecotoxicity data. However, animal data indicate that their use may pose risk to environmental biota. The cytogenetic effects of cypermethrin, an α-class type II pyrethroid were evaluated using robust genotoxicity assay of chromosomal aberration (CA) and micronucleus (MN) tests in highly mitotic kidney cells and in erythrocytes of a freshwater fish, Channa punctata Bloch.
