Reproductive Toxicology: Ensuring Safety in Pharmaceuticals and Chemicals

Reproductive toxicology (Reprotox) is a critical aspect of product development in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. It involves the study of substances that affect the reproductive system and may cause disorders such as infertility, developmental issues, and birth defects. At Vivotecnia, we offer comprehensive reproductive toxicology services to ensure the safety and efficacy of your products, both for pharmaceutical and chemical applications.

Understanding Reproductive Toxicology

Where there are no concerns over reproduction or development, REACH calls for starting with the screening study (OECD421/422) at this tonnage.

Where there are serious concerns about the potential for adverse effects on fertility or development, either a prenatal developmental toxicity study or a two-generation or extended one-generation reproductive toxicity study may be proposed instead of the screening study.

Our Services in Reproductive Toxicology

At Vivotecnia, we offer a comprehensive suite of reproductive toxicology services, tailored to meet the unique needs of both pharmaceutical and chemical product development. Our services include:

        1.  Screening Studies (OECD421/422): These are the initial studies conducted when there are no serious concerns over reproduction or development. They provide a broad overview of the potential reproductive and developmental effects of a product.
        2. Prenatal Developmental Toxicity Studies: These studies are conducted to assess the potential adverse effects of a product on the development of the offspring during the prenatal period. They are required for products marketed at 100 TPA and above.
        3. Two-Generation Reproductive Toxicity Studies: These studies are conducted to assess the potential adverse effects of a product on both the parent generation and the offspring. They are typically required when there are serious concerns about the potential for adverse effects on fertility or development, or when the 28-day or 90-day study indicates adverse effects on reproductive organs or tissues.
        4. Extended One-Generation Reproductive Toxicity Studies: These studies are an alternative to two-generation studies and are designed to provide information on the effects of a product on the parent generation and at least one generation of offspring.
        5. In Vivo Mammalian Studies: These studies are conducted to assess the potential adverse effects of a product on mammals. They provide valuable information on the potential risks to humans.
