Urinary metabolite concentrations of organophosphorous pesticides, bisphenol A, and phthalates among pregnant women in Rotterdam, the Netherlands: the Generation R study.
TLDR
Levels of six dialkyl phosphate metabolites of OP pesticides, a chlorpyrifos-specific metabolite (3,5,6-trichloro-2-pyridinol, TCPy), BPA, and 14 phthalate metabolites in urine samples of 100 pregnant women from the Generation R study, the Netherlands indicate that the generation R study population provides a wide distribution of selected environmental exposures.

Maternal Exposure to Particulate Air Pollution and Term Birth Weight: A Multi-Country Evaluation of Effect and Heterogeneity
TLDR
Maternal exposure to particulate pollution was associated with LBW at term across study populations and three site characteristics and aspects of exposure assessment methodology appeared to contribute to the variation in associations reported by centers. Expand
Maternal and Paternal Risk Factors for Cryptorchidism and Hypospadias: A Case–Control Study in Newborn Boys
TLDR
Both abnormalities were associated with suboptimal maternal health, a lower maternal education, and a Turkish origin of the parents, and being small for gestational age was a risk factor for hypospadias, and preterm birth was arisk factor for cryptorchidism. Expand
Bilateral testicular microlithiasis predicts the presence of the precursor of testicular germ cell tumors in subfertile men.
TLDR
Bilateral testicular microlithiasis is indicative for CIS in subfertile men, a known risk population for invasive testicular germ cell tumor (TGCT), that is seminomas and nonseminomas. Expand
Fetal Growth and Prenatal Exposure to Bisphenol A: The Generation R Study
TLDR
The findings suggest that maternal urinary BPA may impair fetal growth, and further evidence is needed to corroborate these findings in the general population. Expand
A high hypospadias rate in The Netherlands.
TLDR
A 4-fold higher than expected hypospadias rate is found, which may be explained by case ascertainment differences, and evidence for substantial geographical differences is provided. Expand
Serum inhibin B as a marker of spermatogenesis.
TLDR
It is concluded that inhibin B is the best available endocrine marker of spermatogenesis in subfertile men because of its close correlation with serum FSH levels and receiver operating characteristic analysis. Expand
Levels of metabolites of organophosphate pesticides, phthalates, and bisphenol A in pooled urine specimens from pregnant women participating in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa).
TLDR
The higher levels of metabolites in the MoBa participants may have been from intake via pesticide residues in food, consumption of canned food, especially fish/seafood (BPA), and use of personal care products (selected phthalates). Expand
The advantages of standardized evaluation of male infertility.
TLDR
The aim of the present work was to study the merits of routine collection of a common dataset in a computer-based patient record (CPR) for standardization, quality of data and clinical research. Expand
Is routine scrotal ultrasound advantageous in infertile men?
TLDR
Routine scrotal ultrasound provides valuable information in the diagnostic evaluation of infertile men and substantially more pathological conditions are detected compared to clinical palpation, and the high prevalence of testicular malignancies underlines the clinical relevance of routineScrotal ultrasonography in infertiles men.
