Trichlorofon was evaluated for its teratogenic potential in the CD-1 mouse at doses of 200, 300, or 400 mg/kg/day administered by gavage on days 7-16 of gestation. In the CD-1 mouse, TCF was teratogenic, fetotoxic and lethal at the two highest dose levels which were also maternally lethal. At the lowest dose level which was not maternally lethal, there was a significant decrease in the number of calcified centers in the forepaws and hindpaws indicating fetotoxicity and a delay in maturation. TCF was administered at doses of 50, 100, or 200 mg/kg/day to CD rats by gavage on gestational days 7-19 (study I) or 8-20 (study II). In both study I and II, the highest dose level was maternally lethal. In study I, TCF was teratogenic with a shift in rib profile. In study II, TCF was teratogenic with an increased incidence in malformations of the urinary system. Additionally, TCF was fetotoxic with reduced ossification of the skulls.
