Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility
Becaplermin was not genotoxic in a battery of in vitro assays, (including those for bacterial and mammalian cell point mutation, chromosomal aberration, and DNA damage/repair). Becaplermin was also not mutagenic in an in vivo assay for the induction of micronuclei in mouse bone marrow cells.
Carcinogenesis and reproductive toxicity studies have not been conducted with REGRANEX Gel.
Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with REGRANEX Gel. It is also not known whether REGRANEX Gel can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity. REGRANEX Gel should be given to pregnant women only if clearly needed.
