You have reached the relaunched Web site of the DevTox Project (Version 3.1).

This Web site is intended to provide a valuable resource for health professionals and researchers working in the field of developmental toxicology and represents one of the most comprehensive sources of images of developmental abnormalities.

There are three areas accessible on this site from the menus above, reflecting the main parts of the project:

Supplementary information on the project itself, a list of project partners and relevant links.

The updated harmonized nomenclature for developmental toxicology, based on the revised IFTS terminology (Makris et al. 2009): More than 2,900 images show examples for external, skeletal, soft tissue and maternal-fetal anomalies [last update February 2020]. The harmonized categorization achieved at the eighth Berlin Workshop has been included [update October 2016].
