BACKGROUND Although the potential risk of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to humans has recently increased due to expanding production and widespread use, the potential adverse effects of CNTs on embryo-fetal development have not yet been determined. METHODS This study investigated the potential effects of multi-wall CNTs (MWCNTs) on pregnant dams and embryo-fetal development in rats. MWCNTs were administered to pregnant rats by gavage at 0, 40, 200, and 1,000 mg/kg/day. All dams were subjected to… CONTINUE READING
