Medicinal Safety Research Laboratories, Daiichi Sankyo Co., Ltd., 1-16-13 Kita-Kasai, Edogawa-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

We previously revealed that insulin-induced severe and long-lasting maternal hypoglycemia in rats caused anophthalmia and microphthalmia in fetuses; however, it remained unclear whether hypoglycemia-induced eye anomalies were developmental retardation or disruption, and when and how they developed. Hence, we induced hypoglycemia in pregnant Sprague-Dawley rats by injecting insulin from Days 6 to 11 of pregnancy and performed periodical histopathological examination of fetal eyes from embryonic days (E)10 to 20. On E10, optic vesicle had developed normally both in the control and insulin-treated group; however, on E11, optic cup (OC) had developed in the control group but not in the insulin-treated group.
