In female fetuses, d62 MI-TP administration increased testosterone concentrations significantly, up to levels similar to that found in male fetuses (d90 vehicle vs TP, P<0.01). Female plasma estradiol was significantly increased by d62 MI-TP treatment at d90 gestation (P<0.05) beyond that of male fetal plasma (d90 female vehicle n = 6, MI-TP n = 8; male vehicle n = 10).
