This research project was initiated with the objective of evaluating the potential for diesel exhaust emissions to produce malformations in rabbit fetuses. The pregnant does were exposed by the inhalation route to a 10% concentration of diesel exhaust emissions in inhalation chambers on days 6 through 18 of gestation. Methods used conform to the guideline developed by the Food and Drug Administration for evaluating teratogenic effects in rabbits. The results of the exposure of pregnant rabbits indicate that diesel exhaust emissions have no effect upon the normal development of rabbit fetuses. Diesel exhaust emissions did not effect any of the parameters evaluated to assess maternal toxicity nor total number of fetuses born.
