Warning: A sun-dried powder of Andrographis paniculata Nees mixed with the food (2g/Kg/day) given to female mice for a duration of 6 weeks, inhibits all the pregnancies when mated with fertile males, which did not receive the plant (Zoha MS et al., 1989). Dry leaves powder given per os to albino rat males (20 mg/day) for 60 days, abrogates spermatogenesis and induces degenerative changes in seminiferous tubules, regression in Leydig cells and epididymis (Akbarsha MA et al., 1990). Note that an testicular toxicity on male rats was reported in another publication (Burgos RA et al., 1997).
