Human Health Effects of Bisphenol A

TLDR
This chapter reviews the latest research on BPA, focusing on human exposure, discussions of biomonitoring studies and toxicokinetic models, human health effects, and research needs, and includes illustrative examples of animal models that address whether BPA-exposure is associated with changes in certain health endpoints.

A review on sources and health impacts of bisphenol A

TLDR
In-depth studies are needed to understand the fate of these compounds particularly in the developing nations and the associated adverse health impacts of BPA due to prolonged exposure.

Toxicity of Bisphenol-A: Effects on Health and Regulations

TLDR
The chemical structure of BPA, factors affecting BPA migration to food and beverages, effects on health, and recent regulations will be reviewed.

Human biomonitoring of bisphenol A exposure in an Austrian population

Abstract Bisphenol A (BPA) is an industrial chemical widely used as a monomer in polycarbonate, epoxy resin and thermal paper production, and as a stabiliser in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) production.

Large effects from small exposures. III. Endocrine mechanisms mediating effects of bisphenol A at levels of human exposure.

TLDR
Concern with human exposure to BPA derives from identification of molecular mechanisms mediating effects in human and animal tissues at very low doses, in vivo effects in experimental animals caused by low doses within the range of human exposure, and widespread human Exposure to levels of BPA that cause adverse effects in animals.

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.

Toxicokinetics of bisphenol A in pregnant DA/Han rats after single i.v. application

TLDR
The rather similar concentration time course in Placenta and fetal liver indicates that BPA is readily transferred across the placenta of DA/Han rats to the fetus, and there is a concern of adverse endocrine effects from prenatal exposure to this potential ‘endocrine disruptor’.

Toxicokinetics of bisphenol A in female DA/Han rats after a single i.v. and oral administration

TLDR
The toxicokinetic properties of BPA in DA/Han rats are in agreement with the hypothesis of a rapid first-pass elimination by the liver and efficient metabolic clearance of low oral doses, and only excessive doses may lead to bioaccumulation if detoxification pathways are saturated.

TLDR
The results suggest that compounds leaching from epoxy resin may support the growth of microorganisms in a residential water holding tank and implies a higher risk of BPA leaching to drinking water during a summer season.

Parent bisphenol A accumulation in the human maternal-fetal-placental unit.

TLDR
Exposure levels of parent BPA were found within a range typical of those used in recent animal studies and were shown to be toxic to reproductive organs of male and female offspring.
