Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are worldwide present in the environment and the general population. Animal studies have shown developmental toxicity of these compounds. To investigate the PFCs exposure of neonates from mother during gestation and lactation, we analyzed twelve PFCs in matched maternal serum, cord serum and breast milk samples collected from(More)
Cadmium (Cd) is a common environmental pollutant, and urinary Cd (UCd) is generally used as a marker of exposure; however, our understanding on the related urinary metabolic changes caused by Cd exposure is still not clear. In this study, we applied a mass-spectrometry-based metabolomic approach to assess the urinary metabolic changes in human with(More)
Tetrabromobisphenol A(TBBPA) and hexabromocyclododecane diastereoisomers (alpha, beta, and gamma-HBCD) were determined in 24 pooled human milk samples and 48 Chinese total diet study (TDS) samples collected in 2007. On the basis of ultra performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) analysis, levels of TBBPA ranged from < LOD to 5124 pg/g(More)
Seven polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) congeners (BDE-28, BDE-47, BDE-99, BDE-100, BDE-153, BDE-154 and BDE-183) and six indicator polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) congeners (CB-28, CB-52, CB-101, CB-138, CB-153 and CB-180) were measured in 24 pooled human milk samples comprised of 1237 individual samples from 12 provinces in China. The samples were(More)
Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), especially perfluorooctanesulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoate (PFOA), are known to occur throughout the environment and in the human population (Houde et al., 2006). The occurrence of PFCs in human umbilical cord blood and human milk, coupled with the potential developmental toxicity of PFCs, suggests the need for(More)
We measured two nitro musk fragrances (musk xylene) and musk ketone) and five polycyclic musk fragrances (galaxolide [HHCB], tonalide [AHTN], celestolide [ADBI], traseolide [ATII], and phantolide [AHMI]) in human blood samples from 11 cities of China (n = 204). Possible temporal trends in musk concentrations and associations with personal factors, such as(More)
Dietary exposure to persistent organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) was assessed for Chinese populations, using the total diet study (TDS) approach in 2007. Multistage random cluster sampling method was used in this study. 108 composite samples, representative of foods "as consumed" by the Chinese were analyzed for residues of OCPs by a multi-residue method.(More)
A combinatorial platform of liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) and liquid chromatography coupled with time of flight mass spectrometry (LC-TOF-MS) has been developed to investigate the in vivo kinetics and biotransformation of ochratoxin A (OTA) in rats. The stable isotope dilution LC-MS/MS method was first validated by determining(More)
A comprehensive method was developed for the simultaneous trace analysis of ten hormone antagonist pharmaceuticals (raloxifene, exemestane, letrozole, anastrozole, mifepristone, finastride, tamoxifen, N-desmethyltamoxifen, clomiphene, and toremifene) in municipal sewage and hospital wastewater samples. The target compounds were firstly extracted using an(More)
A environment-friendly microwave-assisted extraction used to extract trace mercury compounds from fish samples, and a ultra-sensitive method for the analysis of Hg(II), methylmercury (MeHg) and ethylmercury (EtHg) by using capillary electrophoresis-inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (CE-ICP-MS) were described in this study. The extraction method(More)
