Vigamox eye drop was not teratogenic when administered to pregnant rats during organogenesis at oral
doses as high as 500 mg/kg/day (approximately 21,700 times the highest recommended total daily human ophthalmic dose);
however, decreased fetal body weights and slightly delayed fetal skeletal development were observed. There was no evidence
of teratogenicity when pregnant Cynomolgus monkeys were given oral doses as high as 100 mg/kg/day (approximately 4,300
times the highest recommended total daily human ophthalmic dose). An increased incidence of smaller fetuses was observed
at 100 mg/kg/day.
