Systematic review of the potential adverse effects of caffeine consumption in healthy adults, pregnant women, adolescents, and children.
To date, one of the most heavily cited assessments of caffeine safety in the peer-reviewed literature is that issued by Health Canada (Nawrot et al., 2003). Since then, >10,000 papers have beenExpand

High prevalence of AIP gene mutations following focused screening in young patients with sporadic pituitary macroadenomas.
BACKGROUND Aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein (AIP) mutations (AIPmut) cause aggressive pituitary adenomas in young patients, usually in the setting of familial isolated pituitaryExpand

Single nucleotide polymorphisms in the human aryl hydrocarbon receptor nuclear translocator (ARNT) gene.
Species' variation(s) in gene homologues can result in differences among species in their quantitative and qualitative susceptibility and responsiveness to environmental contaminants. In the case ofExpand

Steviol glycoside safety: is the genotoxicity database sufficient?
The safety of steviol glycoside sweeteners has been extensively reviewed in the literature. National and international food safety agencies and approximately 20 expert panels have concluded thatExpand

A review of background dioxin concentrations in urban/suburban and rural soils across the United States: implications for site assessments and the establishment of soil cleanup levels.
Over the last several decades, dioxin releases have decreased >90%, leading to a corresponding decrease in human body burdens. In addition, the weight-of-evidence indicates that soil exposures haveExpand

An evaluation of single nucleotide polymorphisms in the human aryl hydrocarbon receptor-interacting protein (AIP) gene.
The human aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a protein for which there is little evidence of polymorphic variability of functional consequence. It has been hypothesized that potential variability inExpand

Steviol glycoside safety: are highly purified steviol glycoside sweeteners food allergens?
Steviol glycoside sweeteners are extracted from the plant Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni), a member of the Asteraceae (Compositae) family. Many plants from this family can induce hypersensitivityExpand

Assessment of genotoxic potential of Cr(VI) in the mouse duodenum: an in silico comparison with mutagenic and nonmutagenic carcinogens across tissues.
In vitro studies on hexavalent chromium [Cr(VI)] indicate that reduced forms of this metal can interact with DNA and cause mutations. Recently, Cr(VI) was shown to induce intestinal tumors in mice;Expand

A genomics-based analysis of relative potencies of dioxin-like compounds in primary rat hepatocytes.
Toxic equivalency factors (TEFs) for dioxin-like compounds are largely based on relative potency (REP) values derived from biochemical endpoints such as enzyme activity. As of yet, REPs based on geneExpand
