Teratogens and Development
Teratogens are agents that cause abnormalities after fetus exposure during pregnancy. The agents normally occur after particular defects increase (Carrasco, 2013). For instance, during the 1960s, doctors used thylomide to treat morning sickness, but prolonged exposure during this stage of development created phocomelia. This condition was a congenital malformation that attached both the feet and arms to abbreviated arms and legs. A pregnancy is most vulnerable during the early stages of development both at home and in the workplace. These effects relate to the types of agents, dosage duration and exposure periods. Teratogenic agents may often include infectious agents, physical agents, maternal factors, environmental and chemical agents, and drugs (Carrasco, 2013). Examples of infectious agents are varicella, syphilis, or herpes while physical agents include hyperthermia or ionizing agents. Environmental agents may include herbicides or industrial solvents while maternal factors include diabetes. If medication is necessary, it is advisable that patients receive the lowest dosage possible. Doctors should avoid combining drug therapies and exposing them during the first trimester.
