Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicity
TLDR
To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, a global prevention strategy is proposed and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicants is proposed.
Male reproductive health and environmental xenoestrogens.
TLDR
The growing number of reports demonstrating that common environmental contaminants and natural factors possess estrogenic activity presents the working hypothesis that the adverse trends in male reproductive health may be, at least in part, associated with exposure to estrogenic or other hormonally active environmental chemicals during fetal and childhood development.
Developmental neurotoxicity of industrial chemicals
TLDR
Two main impediments to prevention of neurodevelopmental deficits of chemical origin are the great gaps in testing chemicals for developmental neurotoxicity and the high level of proof required for regulation.
Serum vaccine antibody concentrations in children exposed to perfluorinated compounds.
TLDR
Elevated exposures to PFCs were associated with reduced humoral immune response to routine childhood immunizations in children aged 5 and 7 years.
Evidence on the Human Health Effects of Low-Level Methylmercury Exposure
TLDR
A synthesis of the current knowledge on the human health effects of low-level MeHg exposure to provide a basis for future research efforts, risk assessment, and exposure remediation policies worldwide is undertaken.
Plasma malondialdehyde as biomarker for oxidative stress: reference interval and effects of life-style factors.
TLDR
The present data support that P-MDA may be a potential biomarker for oxidative stress on a group basis, and within-subject and day-to-day variations of P- MDA indicated that the potential of P -MDA as a biomarkers for individuals is questionable.
Cognitive performance of children prenatally exposed to "safe" levels of methylmercury.
TLDR
Subtle effects on brain function seem to be detectable at prenatal methylmercury exposure levels currently considered to be safe, within a cohort of 1022 consecutive singleton births in the Faroe Islands.
Neurobehavioral deficits associated with PCB in 7-year-old children prenatally exposed to seafood neurotoxicants.
TLDR
While no PCB effects were apparent in children with low mercury exposure, PCB-associated deficits within the highest tertile of mercury exposure indicated a possible interaction between the two neurotoxicants.
Impact of prenatal methylmercury exposure on neurobehavioral function at age 14 years.
TLDR
The effects on brain function associated with prenatal methylmercury exposure appear to be multi-focal and permanent, supported by independent assessment of neurophysiological outcomes.
Birthweight in a fishing community: significance of essential fatty acids and marine food contaminants.
TLDR
An increased intake of marine fats appears to prolong the duration of gestation, but birthweight adjusted for gestational age may decrease at high intake levels.
