Bisphenol A (BPA) is an environmental chemical with physiological potencies that cause adverse effects, even at environmentally relevant exposures, on the basis of a number of studies in experimental rodents. Thus, there is an increasing concern about environmental exposure of humans to BPA. In the present study, we used experimentally controlled cynomolgus(More)
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are endocrine disrupting chemicals that disturb normal development of embryonic brains. In the present study, we evaluated the relationship between maternal plasma PCB concentration and infant behavioral characteristics in mother-infant interactions. We grouped 20 pregnant cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) into higher(More)
Pregnant rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) were exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) at 30 and 300 ng/kg by subcutaneous injection at gestational day 20, followed by additional injections of TCDD (1.5 and 15 ng/kg, respectively) every 30 days till 90 days after parturition. The offspring delivered from these experimentally TCDD-exposed(More)
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a widespread environmental contaminant, and humans are routinely exposed to BPA. We investigated whether prenatal exposure to BPA influences behavioral development in juvenile cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis). Pregnant cynomolgus monkeys were implanted with subcutaneous pumps and exposed to 10μg/kg/day BPA or vehicle (control)(More)
