A 90-day gavage study was performed to evaluate the subchronic toxicity of 1-methyl-3-propylimidazole-2-thione (PTI) when administered to Crl:CD BR rats. PTI is a chemical catalyst and is structurally similar to the thioureas, which are known to adversely affect the thyroid. Therefore, this study was designed to investigate the effects of PTI on the thyroid. Male and female rats were dosed with 0, 5, 10, 25, or 75 mgPTI/kg/day for 13 weeks. Clinical pathology examinations and pathology… 
Induction of thyroid and liver tumors by chronic exposure to 2-methylimidazole in F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice
TLDR
C carcinogenic activity of 2MI was demonstrated in male and female rats and mice and in all exposed groups of males and in the 2,500 ppm females.
Enhanced rat Hershberger assay appears reliable for detection of not only (anti-)androgenic chemicals but also thyroid hormone modulators.
TLDR
The findings in the present study suggest that the enhanced Hershberger assay, with evaluation of thyroid histopathology and weights, and hormone levels, appears to be reliable for screening for not only (anti-)androgenic chemicals but also thyroid hormone modulators.
Perfluorooctane Sulfonate-Induced Thyroid Hormone Disruption in the Rat
TLDR
This work substantiates the endocrine disrupting effects of PFOS, but fails to provide evidence for its physiological consequences in comparison to PTU based on two biomarkers of hypothyroidism: myocardial β-adrenergic receptor density and hepatic malic enzyme activity.
Exposure to perfluorooctane sulfonate during pregnancy in rat and mouse. I: maternal and prenatal evaluations.
TLDR
Both maternal and developmental toxicity of PFOS are demonstrated in the rat and mouse, with a host of birth defects, including cleft palate, anasarca, ventricular septal defect, and enlargement of the right atrium seen.
Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals: Prepubertal Exposures and Effects on Sexual Maturation and Thyroid Activity in the Female Rat. A Focus on the EDSTAC Recommendations
TLDR
This review focuses specifically on the revised in vivo screening procedure recommended under the title Research Protocol for Assessment of Pubertal Development and Thyroid Function in Juvenile Female Rats.
Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals: Prepubertal Exposures and Effects on Sexual Maturation and Thyroid Function in the Male Rat. A Focus on the EDSTAC Recommendations
TLDR
The existing data indicate that this assessment of puberty in the male rat is a simple and effective method to detect the EDC activity of pesticides and toxic substances.
Acetaminophen alters estrogenic responses in vitro: stimulation of DNA synthesis in estrogen-responsive human breast cancer cells.
TLDR
Novel findings demonstrate that therapeutic acetaminophen concentrations specifically stimulate estrogen-responsive breast cancer cell DNA synthesis, suggesting that this drug may exert estrogenic effects.

TLDR
Assessing the health risks of thyroid disruption by environmental xenobiotics will need to include an improved understanding of how divergent mechanisms alter THs and consequent adverse impacts on nervous system development.
Identification of Thyroid Hormone Receptor Active Compounds Using a Quantitative High-Throughput Screening Platform
TLDR
The miniaturized GH3.TRE-Luc assay offers a promising addition to the in vitro test battery for endocrine disruption, and given the low percentage of compounds testing positive, its high-throughput nature is an important advantage for future toxicological screening.
Thyroid-Disrupting Chemicals: Interpreting Upstream Biomarkers of Adverse Outcomes
TLDR
Individuals are potentially vulnerable to adverse effects as a consequence of exposure to thyroid-disrupting chemicals and any degree of thyroid disruption that affects TH levels on a population basis should be considered a biomarker of adverse outcomes, which may have important societal outcomes.
