Abstract

The frog embryo teratogenesis assay-Xenopus (FETAX) is a powerful and flexible bioassay that makes use of the embryos of the anuran Xenopus laevis. FETAX satisfies the requirements of low cost, reliability and reproducibility and, thanks to its three endpoints (i.e., mortality, teratogenicity and growth inhibition) can detect the xenobiotics that affect embryonic development. In this paper, we have used FETAX to evaluate samples of soils collected in an oil-contaminated area. Embryos were exposed directly to the soil to be tested. Particular attention was devoted to provide a statistical procedure for analysing mortality and malformation data as well as growth retardation. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
