Valeric acid (C-180; 109-52-4) was evaluated for developmental effects in 22 female Crl:COBS, CD(SD)BR rats administered 750 mg/kg of the test substance by gavage on days 6 through 15 of gestation. A control group received corn oil. Maternal animals showed an increased incidence of clinical observations (specific signs not reported). Offspring showed an increased incidence of delayed ossification of several bone structures.
