To clarify the general toxicity of acrylamide in the juvenile rats, acrylamide was administered to F344 rats after birth for 12 weeks. Reduction of body weight was noted in 20 and 40 ppm females. Acrylamide-induced histopathological changes were limited to degeneration and necrosis of the seminiferous epithelium in the testes and desquamated epithelium in the epididymides in 40 ppm males. Taken together with previous reports, juvenile rats are not necessarily more susceptible to acrylamide-induced toxicity as compared with young adults.
