Abstract Xylene (CAS No. 1330-207) was evaluated for developmental effects in mice administered the test substance by gavage at dose levels of 0, 0.6, 1.2, 2.4, 3.0, 3.6 or 4.2 mL/kg/day. There were 15/15 mortalities at 4.2 mL/kg/day and 12/38 at 3.6 mL/kg/day. Maternal body weight gain was reduced in survivors at 3.6 mL/kg/day (p<0.05). The average maternal liver weight was increased at 2.4 and 3.0 mL/kg/day and the average fetal weight was reduced at 2.4 and 3.0 mL/kg/day (p<0.05). The average percent of malformed fetuses was increased at 2.4, 3.0, and 3.6 mL/kg/day (p<0.01). Cleft palate was observed in the 1.2, 2.4, 3.0, and 3.6 mL/kg/day groups.
