  • Due to the wide distribution and persistence of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), an increasing number of studies are focusing on the toxicological effects of PFOS exposure in mammalian and fish model species. The results of these studies (on estrogenic activity, development and reproduction, etc.), however, are largely inconsistent owing to differences in exposure conditions (exposure time, concentrations, species and test methods, etc.). Oviparous fish species such as zebrafish and common… CONTINUE READING
