Within the framework of an EU project on risk assessment of brominated flame retardants, TBBPA was studied for neurobehavioral effects in rats. To permit benchmark dose analysis, eight dose levels were chosen ranging from 0 to 3000mg/kg body weight. Exposure of parental rats started 10 and 2 weeks before mating in males and females, respectively, and was(More)
A 28-day repeated dose study in rats (OECD407) enhanced for endocrine and immune parameters was performed with hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD). Rats were exposed by daily gavage to HBCD dissolved in corn oil in 8 dose groups with doses ranging between 0 and 200 mg/kg bw per day (mkd). Evaluation consisted of dose-response analysis with calculation of a(More)
Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) is a widely used brominated flame retardant which has been recently detected in many environmental matrices. Data from a subacute toxicity study indicated dose-related effects particularly on the pituitary thyroid-axis and retinoids in female rats. Brominated and chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons are also reported to exert(More)
