Standard assays for mutagenicity indicate that L-carnitine is not mutagenic.Reproductive studies have been performed in rats and rabbits at doses up to 3.8times the human doses used for the treatment of primary and secondary L-carnitine deficiency on the basis of surface area and have revealed no evidenceof impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to L-carnitine. However, there areno adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal
