Results and discussion

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The results suggest that trichloroacetic acid may be transported to the fetus partly para-placentally, with the possibility of fetal swallowing or absorption through the skin.
Executive summary:

Trichloroacetic acid infused i.v. in the maternal plasma accumulated in amniotic fluid but less pronounced than after trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene inhalation, indicating that some metabolism of trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene to trichloroacetic acid may occur in the feto-placental unit. The results suggest that trichloroacetic acid may be transported to the fetus partly para-placentally, with the possibility of fetal swallowing or absorption through the skin.
