Experimental studies have reported that pyrethroid insecticides affect male endocrine and reproductive function, but human data are limited. We recruited 161 men from an infertility clinic between years 2000-2003 and measured serum reproductive and thyroid hormone levels, as well as the pyrethroid metabolites 3-phenoxybenzoic acid (3PBA) and cis- and trans-3-(2,2-dichlorovinyl)-2,2-dimethylcyclopropane carboxylic acid (cis-DCCA and trans-DCCA) in spot urine samples. When adjusting for potential… CONTINUE READING
