Key value for chemical safety assessment

Effects on fertility

Description of key information
not relevant
Effect on fertility: via oral route
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available
Effect on fertility: via inhalation route
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available
Effect on fertility: via dermal route
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available
Additional information

Lactide is known to be unstable in aqueous solution and breaks down quickly to form the acidic compound lactoyl lactic acid (the open-ring lactic acid dimer), and subsequently to lactic acid. Lactic acid is a ubiquitous and essential molecule of life, found in all higher animals, and many micro-organisms. It is also found in many food items. As local and route specific effects are not relevant for this endpoint, submitting a reprotox study is not relevant.
