Immunotoxicity of Perfluorooctanoic Acid to the Marine Bivalve Species Ruditapes philippinarum

PFOA immunotoxicity to R. philippinarum is verifies at different levels and the integrated assessment of stress levels caused by PFOA in marine environment is verified.

Ecotoxicological effects of microplastics on aquatic organisms: a review

It is shown that MPs originating from polystyrene, polypropylene, and polyvinylchloride show greater toxicity toward aquatic organisms, with effects on the immune system, reproductive system, nervous system, and endocrine system, so elucidating the cumulative toxic expression of MPs in different polluted environments is critical.

Impacts of microplastics on immunity

There is an urgent need to be aware of the harm of MPs to the human immune system and more studies about immunological assessments, and further elucidate the immunological hazards and risks of humans that exposed to MPs.

Microplastics aggravate the bioaccumulation of two waterborne veterinary antibiotics in an edible bivalve species: potential mechanisms and implications for human health.

The activity of GST and expression of key detoxification genes were significantly suppressed by MPs, suggesting that the disruption of detoxification represents one possible explanation for the aggravated bioaccumulation observed here.



Ecotoxicological Effects of Chemical Contaminants Adsorbed to Microplastics in the Clam Scrobicularia plana

Although microplastics are distributed globally in the marine environment, a great deal of unknowns relating to their ecotoxicological effects on the marine biota remain. Due to their lipophilic

Immunotoxicity of nanoparticle nTiO2 to a commercial marine bivalve species, Tegillarca granosa

Microplastics as Vehicles of Environmental PAHs to Marine Organisms: Combined Chemical and Physical Hazards to the Mediterranean Mussels, Mytilus galloprovincialis

The ubiquitous occurrence of microplastics (MPs) in the marine environment is raising concern for interactions with marine organisms. These particles efficiently adsorb persistent organic pollutants

Effects of microplastic on fitness and PCB bioaccumulation by the lugworm Arenicola marina (L.).

Polystyrene microplastic had statistically significant effects on the organisms' fitness and bioaccumulation, but the magnitude of the effects was not high, and may be different for sites with different plastic concentrations, or plastics with a higher affinity for POPs.
