Background Bisphenol A (BPA) and 4-tertiary-octylphenol (tOP) are industrial chemicals used in the manufacture of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins (BPA) and nonionic surfactants (tOP). These products are in widespread use in the United States. Objectives We aimed to assess exposure to BPA and tOP in the U.S. general population. Methods We measured the total (free plus conjugated) urinary concentrations of BPA and tOP in 2,517 participants ≥ 6 years of age in the 2003–2004 National Health… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Exposure to Bisphenol A, Bisphenol F, and Bisphenol S in U.S. Adults and Children: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2013–2014

TLDR
Urinary levels showed associations with gender, race/ethnicity, family income, physical activity, smoking, and/or alcohol intake that depended on the specific bisphenol.

Urinary bisphenol A concentrations and their implications for human exposure in several Asian countries.

TLDR
The estimated daily intake of BPA in the seven Asian countries was significantly lower than the tolerable daily intake recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and there was no significant difference in BPA concentrations between genders (male and female) or domicile of residence (rural and urban).

Lead and bisphenol A concentrations in the Canadian population.

TLDR
Although PbB concentrations have declined dramatically since the 1970s, socio-demographic characteristics, the age of dwellings, and certain lifestyle behaviours are associated with higher levels, suggesting continual widespread exposure in the Canadian population.

Urinary Levels of 4-Nonylphenol and 4-t-Octylphenol in a Representative Sample of the Korean Adult Population

TLDR
It is suggested that most Koreans have detectable levels of 4-NP and 4-t-OP in their urine and that the body burden of 5-Nonylphenol, but not 4-T-OP, varies according to some demographic factors.

Determination of urinary levels of Bisphenol A in a Turkish population

TLDR
The data demonstrate that determined amount of total BPA in the present study is lower than the results of similar studies conducted in developed countries.

Bisphenol S in urine from the United States and seven Asian countries: occurrence and human exposures.

TLDR
The daily intake of BPS was estimated on the basis of urinary concentrations using a simple pharmacokinetic approach and there were no significant differences in BPS concentrations between genders (male versus female), or among age groups (categorized as ≤ 19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, and ≥ 50 years), or races (Caucasian versus Asian).

Age-Related Trends in Urinary Excretion of Bisphenol A in Australian Children and Adults: Evidence from a Pooled Sample Study Using Samples of Convenience

TLDR
Urinary concentrations and estimated excretion rates were inversely associated with age, and estimated daily excretion in infants and young children was significantly higher than in adults, which may be explained by their higher food consumption relative to body weight compared to adults and adolescents.

Urinary Concentrations of Bisphenol A and 4-Nonylphenol in a Human Reference Population

TLDR
This study provides the first reference range of human internal dose levels of BPA and NP in a demographically diverse human population and further research is needed to determine the best urinary biomarker(s) to assess exposure to NP.

Bisphenol A levels in human urine.

TLDR
An analytical high-performance liquid chromatography/fluorescence method is reported for BPA and its conjugate in human urine and on the application of this method in two student cohorts, finding that the urinary BPA levels in the students in 1992 were significantly higher than were those in 1999.

Biological Monitoring of Bisphenol A in a Korean Population

TLDR
Effects of genetic polymorphism in sulfotransferase (SULT) 1A1 on urinary BPA, a biomarker for BPA exposure, in 73 Koreans in order to clarify host variability in urinary B PA level is studied.

Temporal Variability and Predictors of Urinary Bisphenol A Concentrations in Men and Women

TLDR
A nonsignificant increase in urinary BPA concentrations in women while pregnant is found compared with nonpregnant samples from the same women, and a single urine sample showed moderate sensitivity for predicting a subject’s tertile categorization.

QUANTITATION OF BISPHENOL A AND BISPHENOL A GLUCURONIDE IN BIOLOGICAL SAMPLES BY HIGH PERFORMANCE LIQUID CHROMATOGRAPHY-TANDEM MASS SPECTROMETRY

TLDR
The results show that care is required for analysis of BPA and its major metabolite BPA-gluc, and that general exposure of humans to BPA is much lower than the worst-case exposure scenario developed.
