  author={E. Clair and R. Mesnage and S. Gress and N. Defarge and D. Hennequin},
The health effects of a Roundup-tolerant genetically modified maize (from 11% in the diet), cultivated with or without Roundup, and Roundup alone (from 0.1 ppb in water), were studied 2 years in rats. In females, all treated groups died 2–3 times more than controls, and more rapidly. This difference was visible in 3 male groups fed GMOs. All results were hormone and sex dependent, and the pathological profiles were comparable. Females developed large mammary tumors almost always more often than… Expand

Differential Effects of Glyphosate and Roundup on Human Placental Cells and Aromatase
It is shown that glyphosate is toxic to human placental JEG3 cells within 18 hr with concentrations lower than those found with agricultural use, and this effect increases with concentration and time, and the presence of Roundup adjuvants enhances glyphosate bioavailability and/or bioaccumulation.

Overall health, body weight, food consumption, clinical pathology parameters, organ weights, gross and microscopic appearance of tissues were comparable between groups fed diets containing Roundup Ready and control corn grain. Expand
Incidences of Selected Lesions in Control Female Harlan Sprague–Dawley Rats from Two-Year Studies Performed by the National Toxicology Program
The intention of this paper is to report spontaneous lesions observed in female vehicle control Harlan SD rats, and to compare the incidence in 2 strains of rats used in NTP studies. Expand
Safety evaluation and risk assessment of the herbicide Roundup and its active ingredient, glyphosate, for humans.
It was concluded that the use of Roundup herbicide does not result in adverse effects on development, reproduction, or endocrine systems in humans and other mammals, and glyphosate is noncarcinogenic. Expand
Comparative effects of the Roundup and glyphosate on mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation.
The results question the safety of Roundup on animal health, because mitochondria is provided with a variety of bioenergetic functions mandatory for the regulation of intracellular aerobic energy production and electrolyte homeostasis. Expand
Ferulic acid, a natural protector against carbon tetrachloride‐induced toxicity
The results show that FA is an effective antioxidant without any side‐effects and may be a great gain in the current search for natural therapy. Expand
Spontaneous neoplasms in aged sprague-dawley rats
Metastases were observed from pheochromocytomas, hepatocellular carcinomas, nephroblastomas, renal pelvis transitional cell carcinoma, interstitial cell tumor and seminoma of the testes, Zymbal's gland adenocarcinomas, and mammary adenOCarc inomas. Expand
Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry method to determine alcohol ethoxylates and alkylamine ethoxylates in soil interstitial water, ground water and surface water samples.
Analytical procedures for these compounds in environmental aqueous samples using LC-MS are presented and individual AEs were detected at concentration levels ranging from 33 to 189 ng/l water. Expand
