Metabolic state can define the ovarian response to environmental contaminants and medicinal plants.
TLDR
It is found that the metabolic status did not influence the release of basal progesterone, testosterone, or insulin-like growth factor I, but obesity influenced the effects of the environmental contaminants and YS, which increased P4 and T release in normal-lean and slightly obese animal ovaries, whilst significant obesity was associated with a lack of P4 response to YS.
INFLUENCE OF PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRY ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANTS ON ANIMAL OVARIAN CELLS
TLDR
The obtained data suggest that the negative effect of BTex on reproduction can be due to their influence on ovarian cell apoptosis, proliferation, turnover and release of peptide and steroid hormones and growth factors, and that FSH and plant molecules can regulate ovarian cell functions and prevent some effects of BTEX on these cells.
Embryotoxic and teratogenic effects of indium chloride in rats and rabbits.
TLDR
Data suggest that the teratogenic effects ofIndium chloride can be attributed primarily to a direct cytotoxic action of indium resulting from placental transfer, but the effect is not a selective one, as it appears only in the presence of maternal toxic effects.

Can xylene and chia (Salvia hispanica L.) seed extract directly affect basic bovine ovarian cell functions
TLDR
A direct effect of both xylene and chia seed extract are proved on bovine ovarian cell proliferation, apoptosis and secretory activity, proving that chia Seed extract could not be potentially useful for natural prevention of all negative effects of xylene on reproduction.

These experiments were designed to determine utero-ovarian vein blood flow and ovarian secretion rates and the ability of ACTH, LH, or FSH to modify these parameters in the cyclic hamster. Hamsters
Skeletal deviations in rats: malformations or variations?
TLDR
The possibility exists that extra 14th ribs could be regarded as indicators of teratogenic potency of a drug at some higher dosage; but the data presented did not demonstrate the usefulness of the other skeletal variants examined as signals ofTeratogenic potential.

TLDR
Embryo toxicology may demonstrate a need for lowered standards of exposure for the woman worker during a pregnancy.
