We measured the concentrations of 11 polyfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs), including perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), and perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS) in 1562 serum samples collected from a representative U.S. population 12 years of age and older in the 1999-2000 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Participants represented both sexes, three race/ethnicities (non-Hispanic blacks, non-Hispanic whites, and Mexican-Americans), and four age… 

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances in sera from children 3 to 11 years of age participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2013-2014.

Polyfluoroalkyl Chemicals in the U.S. Population: Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2003–2004 and Comparisons with NHANES 1999–2000

The apparent reductions in concentrations of PFOS, PFOA, and PFHxS most likely are related to discontinuation in 2002 of industrial production by electrochemical fluorination ofPFOS and related perfluorooctanesulfonyl fluoride compounds.

Polyfluoroalkyl Compounds in Texas Children from Birth through 12 Years of Age

The results suggest that these 300 Texas children from birth through 12 years of age continued to be exposed to several PFCs in late 2009, years after changes in production of some P FCs in the United States.

Serum concentrations of polyfluoroalkyl compounds in Faroese whale meat consumers.

The high frequency of detection of most PFCs suggests widespread exposure in the Faroe Islands already by the early 1990s, with whale meat being an important source.

Associations between serum concentrations of perfluoroalkyl acids and serum lipid levels in a Chinese population.

Perfluorooctanoic acid, perfluorooctanesulfonate, and serum lipids in children and adolescents: results from the C8 Health Project.

Associations between increasing PFOA and PFOS and elevated total cholesterol and LDL-C levels warrant further study, and the epidemiologic and cross-sectional natures of this study limit causal inferences.

Trends in exposure to polyfluoroalkyl chemicals in the U.S. Population: 1999-2008.

These NHANES data suggest that sociodemographic factors may influence exposure and also provide unique information on temporal trends of exposure, and additional research is needed to identify the environmental sources contributing to human exposure to PFCs.

Cord Serum Concentrations of Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) in Relation to Weight and Size at Birth

Despite relatively low cord serum concentrations, there are small negative associations between both PFOS and PFOA concentrations and birth weight and size and future studies should attempt to replicate these findings in other populations.
