Exposure assessment of bisphenols in Chinese women during pregnancy: a longitudinal study.
Findings indicate that exposure to multiple bisphenols at low levels is common over three trimesters, while urinary BPF concentrations during pregnancy are moderately reliable and Occupational exposure should be taken into consideration in future demographic studies.
Italian Children Exposure to Bisphenol A: Biomonitoring Data from the LIFE PERSUADED Project
Children aged 4–6 years had higher BPA levels than those aged 7–10 and 11–14 years, but no differences were detected between sexes, raising concern about the overall exposure of Italian young population.
Urinary bisphenol A (BPA) concentrations and exposure predictors among pregnant women in the Laizhou Wan Birth Cohort (LWBC), China
A wide exposure to BPA is found among pregnant women in this region, which might be associated with seasonal variation and shellfish consumption, and further attention to the comprehensive exposure and potential determinants should be paid.
Exposure to Bisphenol A, Bisphenol F, and Bisphenol S in U.S. Adults and Children: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2013–2014
Urinary levels showed associations with gender, race/ethnicity, family income, physical activity, smoking, and/or alcohol intake that depended on the specific bisphenol.
Critical Analysis of Human Exposure to Bisphenol a and its Novel Implications on Renal, Cardiovascular and Hypertensive Diseases
The present review analyzed BPA exposure data from mammalian cell studies, experimental animal models, and several human populations to estimate daily exposure to BPA by systematically reviewing all articles with original data related to urinary BPA concentration.
Bisphenol A Biomarkers and Biomonitoring


Urinary bisphenol A concentrations and their implications for human exposure in several Asian countries.
The estimated daily intake of BPA in the seven Asian countries was significantly lower than the tolerable daily intake recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and there was no significant difference in BPA concentrations between genders (male and female) or domicile of residence (rural and urban).
Urinary Concentrations of Bisphenol A and 4-Nonylphenol in a Human Reference Population
This study provides the first reference range of human internal dose levels of BPA and NP in a demographically diverse human population and further research is needed to determine the best urinary biomarker(s) to assess exposure to NP.
Association between Urinary Bisphenol A and Waist Circumference in Korean Adults
There is evidence for a positive association between urinary BPA concentration and waist circumference in Korean adults, according to the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety study conducted from 2010 to 2012.
Biological Monitoring of Bisphenol A in a Korean Population
Effects of genetic polymorphism in sulfotransferase (SULT) 1A1 on urinary BPA, a biomarker for BPA exposure, in 73 Koreans in order to clarify host variability in urinary B PA level is studied.
Gender differences in the levels of bisphenol A metabolites in urine.
Urinary bisphenol A concentrations are associated with abnormal liver function in the elderly: a repeated panel study
Community-level exposure to BPA was associated with abnormal liver function in the elderly, indicating that more stringent control of BPA is necessary to protect susceptible populations.
Daily Bisphenol A Excretion and Associations with Sex Hormone Concentrations: Results from the InCHIANTI Adult Population Study
Higher daily BPA excretion was associated with higher total testosterone concentrations in men, in models adjusted for age and study site, and in models additionally adjusted for smoking, measures of obesity, and urinary creatinine concentrations.
