On September 12, 2018, the Institute for Green Science at the Department of Chemistry of Carnegie Mellon University, U.S., will host a webinar on “CLARITY-BPA: Achieving clarity on low dose effects of bisphenol A.” The CLARITY-BPA program was launched in 2013 to elucidate the differences between guideline studies and academic research on low-dose effects of bisphenol A (BPA, CAS 80-05-7) (FPF reported). In February 2018, the draft report on the CLARITY-BPA core study (i.e., guideline studies), conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. National Toxicology Prgram (NTP), was published (FPF reported).

During the webinar, a panel of experts on BPA, namely Jerrold Heindel, formely of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Laura Vandenberg of the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Gail Prins of the University of Illinois at Chicago, and Patricia Hunt of the Washington State University, all U.S., “will discuss peer-reviewed studies from independent academic researchers in CLARITY-BPA that found statistically significant health effects associated with low level exposure to BPA.” The panelists will also address the publicly available results from the guideline studies conducted in CLARITY-BPA, highlighting that also these studies “demonstrate statistically significant effects from low dose exposure to BPA.” Registration is now open.
