Prenatal cadmium and ethanol increase amphetamine-evoked dopamine release in rat striatum.

Abstract

To explore interactive deleterious effects of the teratogens ethanol and cadmium, pregnant rats were given cadmium (CdCl(2), 50 ppm) and/or ethanol (10%), or tap water (controls) in the drinking water for the entire 21 days of pregnancy.
