Teratology is the study of abnormalities of physiological development. It is often thought of as the study of human congenital abnormalities , but it is broader than that, taking into account other non-birth developmental stages, including puberty ; and other organisms, including plants. The related term developmental toxicity includes all manifestations of abnormal development that are caused by environmental insult.
Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology
Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology, Second Edition, is a comprehensive and authoritative resource that provides the latest literature on this complex subject with a primary focus on three core components—parent, placenta, and fetus—and the continuous changes that occur in each.
Enriched with relevant references describing every aspect of reproductive toxicology, this revised and updated resource addresses the totality of the subject, discussing a broad range of topics, including nanoparticles and radiation, gases and solvents, smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, and metals, amongst others. With a special focus on placental toxicity, this book is the only available reference to connect the three key risk stages, also including discussions on reproductive and developmental toxicity in domestic animals, fish, and wildlife.
Completely revised and updated to include the most recent developments in the field, the book is an essential resource for advanced students and researchers in toxicology, as well as biologists, pharmacologists, and teratologists from academia, industry, and regulatory agencies.

The focus is on newly developed methods, their evaluation as well as the perspectives, which animal experimental approaches can be reduced - or better - replaced according to the 3R principle reduce, refine, replace. In this issue we focus on reproduction and developmental toxicology. Reproduction and developmental toxicology without animal experiments: Where do we stand with science? This time we do not present a single group as usual because research questions that have been answered with countless animals so far are too wide-ranging. The animals cannot be replaced by separate new methods.

Congenital Diseases and the Environment pp Cite as. Studies investigating effects on organogenesis are important for risk assessment, since short-term exposures in susceptible developmental phases e. Several in vitro assays also exist, using cultured rodent embryonic stem cells or whole embryos that deserve further exploitation as a possible screening battery as well as to understand embryotoxicity mechanisms.

However, thalidomide has also been linked to causing a new generation of thalidomide survivors in Brazil, where the drug is used to treat leprosy. Surprisingly how thalidomide causes birth defects and how it acts in the treatment of clinical conditions are still far from clear. In the past decade great strides in our understanding of the actions of the drug, as well as molecular targets, have been made. These challenges include identifying clinically relevant but nonteratogenic forms of the drug, and the mechanisms underlying phocomelia and species specificity.

Birth defects, also known as congenital malformations, are abnormalities present at birth.
