Bisphenol A (BPA) is a contaminant with increasing exposure to it and exerts both toxic and estrogenic effects on mammalian cells. Available literature presents inconsistent and in some cases incomplete data on associated organsystem functions. This study investigates the possibility of blood electrolyte imbalance and kidney function perturbations at prevailing low exposure rates in albino Wistar rats. To five experimental groups each containing five (5) female rats were administered 50, 100…

Low dose administration of Bisphenol A induces liver toxicity in adult rats.
BPA increase gamma globulin protein levels and decreases the level of alkaline phosphatase, aspartate aminotransferase and serum protein β2 and causes weight loss in rats after treatment, and it is demonstrated that the toxic effect of BPA on liver is induced by oxidative stress.
Effect of Oral Exposure to Bisphenol A on the Liver and Kidney of Adult Male Albino Rats
Background: The organic composite of two phenolic neighbors (BPA), is Bisphenol A (BPA). It is also commonly called propane 2,2 bis(4-hydroxyphenyl). BPA is a voluminous industrial chemical used in
Bisphenol a Exposure Causes Increased Oxidation of Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and Its Abduct in Rats
Background and Objectives: Living organisms are exposed to oxidant agents constantly from both endogenous and exogenous sources. One of such oxidant agent is Bisphenol A (BPA) and its exposure is
Bisphenol A Triggers Abnormal Production of Testosterone and Androstenedione Causing Imbalance in the Hormonal Functions in Female Albino Wistar Rats
BPA is a white solid crystals or flakes with a mild phenolic odour at room temperature. It is a monomer used in the production of polycarbonate and epoxy resin used in a wide range of consumer
L-carnitine mitigates bisphenol A-induced hepatic toxicity via activation of Nrf2 and inhibition of pro-inflammatory cytokine gene expression in rats
Bisphenol, used in many polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins industries, exerts toxic effects on mammalian organs. The mechanisms underlying bisphenol toxicity are well understood, however the
Bisphenol A Exposure Causes Prolatin Imbalance and alters Progesterone Functions in Rats
The associations between Bisphenol A (BPA) exposure with prolactin and progesterone hormone levels is been considered globally. A three months study was conducted with female albino rats exposed to


Quercetin ameliorates bisphenol A-induced toxicity in mice.
The results indicated that BPA induces oxidative stress in the liver of rats by decreasing the antioxidant enzymes, and among the tested bioflavonoids, quercetin is shown to have the highest antioxidant activity.
Subacute oral toxicity study of ethynylestradiol and bisphenol A, based on the draft protocol for the 'Enhanced OECD Test Guideline no. 407'
Among the parameters tested, the weight of endocrine-linked organs and their histopathological assessment and estrous cycle stage allowed the detection of theendocrine-related effect of EE, whereas the estrous Cycle stage was only a useful parameter to detect the effect of BPA.
In vivo effects of bisphenol A in laboratory rodent studies.
It is likely, but requiring further confirmation, that adult exposure to BPA affects the brain, the female reproductive system, and the immune system and that developmental effects occur in theFemale reproductive system.
Renal Function, Bisphenol A, and Alkylphenols: Results from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES 2003–2006)
Urinary excretion of triclosan, and possibly BPA, decreased with decreasing renal function and the association was nonsignificant when the CKD-EPI equation was used.
Bisphenol A at Environmentally Relevant Doses Inhibits Adiponectin Release from Human Adipose Tissue Explants and Adipocytes
BPA at environmentally relevant doses inhibits the release of a key adipokine that protects humans from metabolic syndrome, and the mechanism by which BPA suppresses adiponectin and the receptors involved remains to be determined.
Release of Bisphenol A from Polycarbonate—A Review
Data suggest that brushing of the bottle did not raise the release of BPA, and claims that used bottles release more BPA than new bottles and that mineral composition of the aqueous food simulant affect release could not be substantiated.
Concentration of bisphenol A in highly consumed canned foods on the U.S. market.
Experiments with fortified frozen vegetables and brine solutions, as well as higher BPA concentrations in canned food solids over liquid portions, clearly indicated that BPA partitions into the solid portion of foods.
