The occurrence of 24 pharmaceuticals (including 15 antibiotics, three analgesic/anti-inflammatory drugs, three anti-epileptic/antidepressant drugs, two beta blockers, and one lipid regulator) was investigated in 75 water samples collected from four bays in the Ugandan part of Lake Victoria. In addition, the potential environmental risk of the target pharmaceutical compounds to aquatic organisms in the aquatic ecosystem of Lake Victoria was assessed. Water samples were extracted using solid… 
Temporal dynamics and ecotoxicological risk assessment of personal care products, phthalate ester plasticizers, and organophosphorus flame retardants in water from Lake Victoria, Uganda.
TLDR
Ecotoxicological risk assessment showed that PCPs, plasticizers, and OPFRs pose a high ecotoxic risk to lives of aquatic organisms (risk quotients, RQ > 1).
Occurrence and risk assessment of organic micropollutants in freshwater systems within the Lake Victoria South Basin, Kenya.
TLDR
A multi-residue analysis covering 428 chemicals using liquid chromatography coupled to high resolution mass spectrometry on water samples collected from 48 surface water sites within the Lake Victoria South Basin, Kenya provides candidate priority compounds for monitoring, assessment and abatement in western Kenya.
A review on environmental occurrence, toxicity and microbial degradation of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs).
TLDR
The most common NSAIDs in river water, groundwater, finished water samples, WWTPs, and hospital wastewater effluents along with their toxicity effects were reviewed and novel investigative approaches for future monitoring studies are proposed.
Occurrence, distribution, and ecological risk of pharmaceuticals in a seasonally ice-sealed river: From ice formation to melting.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the pharmaceuticals retained in ice should be considered with regard to regulating pharmaceuticals' temporal variations in seasonal ice-covered rivers during the freeze-thaw process.
Combining passive sampling with toxicity testing to evaluate potential ecotoxicological effects of pharmaceuticals in wastewater-impacted rivers
Abstract A passive sampling method was employed for time-integrative monitoring of five pharmaceuticals and one transformation product (TP) in rivers impacted by sewage treatment plants, in parallel
Ibuprofen and Diclofenac: Effects on Freshwater and Marine Aquatic Organisms – Are They at Risk?
TLDR
This chapter has focused on the mixture of diclofenac and ibuprofen using acute and sublethal toxicity data for different aquatic species and presented new strategies as adverse outcome pathway to improve the understanding of the toxicity of these compounds.
Enrichment of antibiotics in an inland lake water.
TLDR
This study was the first to reveal the enrichment of antibiotics in Qinghai Lake water, and suggests the urgent need to investigate the possible long-term enrichment and environmental risks ofiotics in inland lakes.
Pharmaceutical compounds in tributaries of the Han River watershed, South Korea.
TLDR
A one-year monitoring study was performed to investigate the occurrence of 13 pharmaceuticals in 24 tributaries of the Han River watershed in October 2015, and all pharmaceuticals presented RQs < 0.01, indicating that potential environmental impacts should be low.
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs in Water: Emerging Contaminants and Ecological Impact
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are among the most consumed pharmaceuticals worldwide due to their significant anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties. These drugs are mainly
Sources of Pharmaceuticals in Water
This chapter focuses on the increasing environmental apprehensions and persistence of numerous organic contaminants so-called emerging contaminants (ECs), including biologically active elements from

Prevalence of selected pharmaceuticals in surface water receiving untreated sewage in northwest Pakistan
TLDR
Results of river samples showed that the target compounds were usually lower in concentration than the respective EC50 values for aquatic organisms, however, the levels for paracetamol and ibuprofen were critical depicting the consequence of untreated disposal.

TLDR
Several PhACs from various prescription classes have been found at concentrations up to the microg/l-level in sewage influent and effluent samples and also in several surface waters located downstream from municipal sewage treatment plants (STPs).
Occurrence and a screening-level risk assessment of human pharmaceuticals in the Pearl River system, South China.
TLDR
For most of the pharmaceuticals, the effluents from the four wastewater treatment plants and Shijing River water were found to be the major discharge sources for the Zhujiang River, but with additional discharge sources from some small urban streams in the wet season.
Investigation of pharmaceuticals in Missouri natural and drinking water using high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
TLDR
Concentrations of pharmaceuticals were generally higher during the winter months, as compared to those in the summer due, presumably, to smaller water quantities in the winter, even though pharmaceutical loadings into the receiving waters were similar for both seasons.
Environmental risk assessment of pharmaceutical residues in wastewater effluents, surface waters and sediments.
TLDR
RQ was applied as a novel approach to estimate the environmental risk of pharmaceuticals that are most frequently detected in wastewater effluents, surface waters and sediments and its continuous introduction in the environment may make them "pseudopersistents".
Spatial and temporal analysis of pharmaceutical concentrations in the upper Tennessee River basin.
TLDR
Water samples were collected from multiple points along the Tennessee River and at the inflow of major tributaries to investigate trends between surface and subsurface samples, seasonal trends, the direct influence of sewage treatment plants, and the effect of downstream distance on pharmaceutical concentrations.
Occurrence and removal of pharmaceutically active compounds in sewage treatment plants with different technologies.
TLDR
Risk assessment based on the "worst case scenario" of the monitoring data from the present study suggested potential toxic risks to aquatic organisms posed by carbamazepine, triclosan and diclofenac associated with such effluent discharge.
Year-long evaluation on the occurrence and fate of pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and endocrine disrupting chemicals in an urban drinking water treatment plant.
TLDR
DEET and nonylphenol can be considered as potential indicator compounds for predicting the occurrence and removal of total PPCPs and EDCs in surface water.
Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in the freshwater aquatic environment
Abstract Pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) are a unique group of emerging environmental contaminants, due to their inherent ability to induce physiological effects in human at low
Residue levels and discharge loads of antibiotics in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), hospital lagoons, and rivers within Lake Victoria Basin, Kenya
TLDR
The first comprehensive survey of some frequently used antibiotics namely ampicillin (AMP), amoxicillin (AMX), sulfamethoxazole (SMX), chloramphenicol (CAP), and ciprofloxacin (CPF) within Lake Victoria Basin of Kenya is presented to aid in the assessment of the risks posed by antibiotics released into the environment.
