High throughput in vitro testing of BPA analogues

Scientists analyze estrogen- and androgen-like properties of BPA analogues using cell-based high throughput microscopy-employing tests; demonstrate anti-estrogenic and anti-androgenic properties of TMBPF

DEHP increases BPA exposure

Scientists show that diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) leads to higher accumulation of bisphenol A (BPA) in reproductive tissues of mice, likely due to competition for detoxification enzymes

Estrogenic activity of BPA alternatives

Study assesses estrogenicity of bisphenol A and 6 bisphenol analogues in human breast cancer cell model; all bisphenols show estrogenic activity; 3 bisphenols more potent than BPA

Summary on estrogenic chemicals and reproductive health

PLOS Biology article highlights reproductive health impacts of estrogenic chemicals such as bisphenol A, its analogues, and phthalates

Epidemiology of mixtures: Xenoestrogens and breast cancer

Scientists find strong association between breast cancer risk and total burden of xenoestrogens; in contrast, individual compounds show only weak associations, if any

Polyester monomers shown not to produce hormonal activity

New study evaluates the androgenic and estrogenic potential of polyester monomers

BPA feminizes turtles

New study finds BPA to affect turtle’s sexual differentiation, may indicate similar potential effects in humans
