Deflazacort (DFZ) is a synthetic oxazoline derivative of prednisolone which comes under the classification of glucocorticoid. In the present study, toxicity of deflazacort on embryo development stage was evaluated using zebrafish embryos, in order to decrease the side effect and causalities. Zebrafish offer practical advantages as powerful in vivo model organisms for toxicity study. They develop rapidly and are optically transparent, making it convenient to observe the movement and fate of… CONTINUE READING
