Catalog of Teratogenic Agents
The most comprehensive one-volume guide of its kind, this indispensable reference work has been revised and expanded to present information on teratogenic agents in a ready-reference format. Included in this eleventh edition are nearly 300 newly listed agents, approximately half of which are developmental genes that cause syndromes or congenital defects. Also included are overviews of recent literature on clinical and experimental teratology, including important Japanese literature not easily available to researchers.
As in previous editions, this volume emphasizes human data and covers pharmaceuticals, chemicals, environmental pollutants, food additives, household products, and viruses. A special effort has been made to obtain as much information as possible on drugs and other agents to which pregnant women may be exposed. Substances are listed alphabetically, and each entry briefly summarizes research procedures and results. In addition, a complete list of references is included for each agent.
