Excerpt: As teratological testing has evolved, there has been an increasing number of observations made on the offspring following maternal exposure to a variety of test agents. At tirst, offspring were probably just observed to see if they had the usual number of eyes and ears, and that they were located in the usual places. More sophistication was added when the pregnant animals were sacrificed and fetuses were examined closely for internal defects, whether by serially slicing them and looking for soft-tissue anomalies, or by staining their skeletons and looking for defects. More recently, investigators have recognized that functional assessment may detect deficits not observed by other techniques; proponents of this testing have hypothesized that functional assessment may be a more sensitive indicator of prenatal insult than are conventional techniques which rely on morphological changes. Hence, a variety of functional assessment techniques have been proposed for a number of organ systems: cardiovascular, immune, renal, respiratory and central nervous system (CNS). The last of these has received the greatest emphasis to date; its investigation is commonly referred to as behavioral teratology or developmental neurotoxicology.
