This study investigated changes in the mutagenic activity of organic fractions from soil contaminated with polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) during pilot‐scale bioslurry remediation. Slurry samples were previously analyzed for changes in PAH and polycyclic aromatic compound content, and this study examined the correspondence between the chemical and toxicological metrics. Nonpolar neutral and semipolar aromatic fractions of samples obtained on days 0, 3, 7, 24, and 29 of treatment were… Expand
Bioremediation of soils contaminated by PAHs: Mutagenicity as a tool to validate environmental quality.
TLDR
The associated damage indicates that the analysis of contaminants and their relationship with mutagenic effects are a fundamental stage for the effective evaluation of the risks and efficiency of bioremediation processes. Expand
Aerobic Bioremediation of PAH Contaminated Soil Results in Increased Genotoxicity and Developmental Toxicity.
TLDR
The formation of more polar and toxic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) transformation products is one of the concerns associated with the bioremediation of PAH-contaminated soils and the increased toxicity measured postbiOREmediation is likely due to hydroxylated and carboxylated transformation products of the 3- and 4-ring PAHs.

Evaluating the effects of bioremediation on genotoxicity of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-contaminated soil using genetically engineered, higher eukaryotic cell lines.
TLDR
Investigating changes in the toxicity and genotoxicity of PAH-contaminated soil from a former manufactured-gas plant site before and after two simulated bioremediation processes found that column treatment induced DNA damage types that were not observed in untreated soil. Expand
Nontarget Analysis Reveals a Bacterial Metabolite of Pyrene Implicated in the Genotoxicity of Contaminated Soil after Bioremediation.
TLDR
This work pursued a nontarget analytical approach combining effect-directed analysis (EDA) and metabolite profiling to compare extracts of PAH-contaminated soil from a former manufactured-gas plant site before and after treatment in a laboratory-scale aerobic bioreactor, and found a compound purified from soil extracts was determined to be genotoxic.

Mutagenicity and genotoxicity of Hong Kong soils contaminated by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and dioxins/furans.
TLDR
Soils of CDW possessed a higher carcinogenic risk (mutagenicity and genotoxicity), based on PAHs concentrations, and bioremediation is recommended to treat the contaminated soils. Expand
Bioremediation of PAH-contamined soils: Consequences on formation and degradation of polar-polycyclic aromatic compounds and microbial community abundance.
TLDR
The accumulation of some oxygenated-PACs during the bioslurry experiment underlines the necessity to monitor these compounds during application of remediation treatment on PAH contaminated soils. Expand

TLDR
Research using submicellar doses of surfactant as a second-stage treatment step is limited and these findings can inform the design of bioremediation systems at field sites treating soil contaminated with PAHs and other hydrophobic contaminants that have low bioaccessibility. Expand

TLDR
Biodegradation ability of the alkalotolerant consortium without the formation of toxic by-products reveals its potential in remediation of soil contaminated with dioxins. Expand

TLDR
This study provides the first snapshot of possible human health and ecological risks associated with surface waters of the Dnieper River and found acute and chronic toxicity were associated with the influent and effluent of the MWTP, however mutagenicity was noted in surface waters throughout the D Annieper River including upstream of theMWTP.

Degradation and formation of polycyclic aromatic compounds during bioslurry treatment of an aged gasworks soil.
TLDR
Investigation of the relative degradation rates of polycyclic aromatic compounds in contaminated soil found that low molecular weight PAHs and heterocyclics were degraded faster than the high molecular weight compounds, while oxy-PAHs degraded more slowly than the parent compounds, suggesting that they were formed during the treatment or that they are more persistent.

TLDR
The compiled data on Salmonella mutagenicity indicates significant differences in mean potency (revertents per gram dry weight) between industrial, urban, and rural/agricultural sites. Expand
Genotoxicity is unrelated to total concentration of priority carcinogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in soils undergoing biological treatment.
TLDR
The data show that genotoxicity of contaminated soils may be unrelated to the concentration of carcinogenic PAHs because of aging or new mutagens formed during biological treatment. Expand

TLDR
The direct mutagenicity of all systems decreases during the bioremediation process, and after a year of treatment only the 10% system induced a mutagenic response that was significantly different from the control system. Expand
