Immunomodulatory effects of EDCs

Scientists review studies reporting that some endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) can affect development and functions of human immune cells; consequences include altered responses to infections and development of immune related diseases; food contact material (FCM)-relevant immunomodulatory EDCs include bisphenols, phthalates, triclosan

Immunotoxicity testing for FCM assessment

FDA scientists review currently available tools, discuss how they might be used for developmental immunotoxicity assessment of food contact materials
