  1. 1. Risk Assessment of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds

    Författare :Anna Beronius; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : During the past decade a growing number of chemicals have been identified as having endocrine disrupting properties in laboratory studies. Also, associations between exposure to such substances and endocrine-related health effects in the general population, as well as in wildlife, have been increasingly reported. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Removal of endocrine-disrupting compounds from wastewater using molecular imprinting

    Författare :Mathieu Le Noir; Bioteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; molecular imprinting; Endocrine-disrupting compounds; wastewater; macroporous gel; trace contaminants;

    Sammanfattning : Endocrine-disrupting compounds (EDCs) such as hormones and certain pharmaceuticals (i.e. birth control pills, oestrogen replacement products and other steroids) can interfere with the regulatory systems of humans and wildlife. Many of these compounds are excreted by humans and released with sewage. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Endocrine disrupting compounds in effluent waters : Chemical analysis to evaluate exposure of fish

    Författare :Maria Pettersson; Lillemor Asplund; Leif Kronberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to investigate if endocrine disruption related to the release of estrogenic and/or androgenic substances via sewage treatment plant and pulp mill effluents is significant in Swedish waters. Chemical analysis of bile fluid in combination with measurement of biomarkers was used for the evaluation of internal exposure and effects in fish. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Experimental Studies of Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in Vascular Cells and Tissues

    Författare :Helén Andersson; Eva Brittebo; Malin Celander; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrine disrupting compounds; endothelium; vascular toxicity; Toxicology; Toxikologi;

    Sammanfattning : Epidemiological evidence suggest that exposure to endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) is a risk factor for diseases that involves the cardiovascular system but we know little about the mechanisms whereby these compounds can cause injury in the vasculature. The aim of this thesis was to characterize the effects and mechanisms of some EDCs in vascular cells and highly vascularized tissues. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Androgen receptors and endocrine disrupting substances

    Författare :Anders Larsson; Per-Erik Olsson; Björn Brunström; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Androgen receptor; Brominated flame retardant; TBECH; Endocrine disruptor; Biology; Biologi; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Biologi;

    Sammanfattning : Throughout the animal kingdom, organisms are dependent on substances such as steroid hormones to help them maintain internal balances. Examples of important tasks that are under regulation of steroid hormones are somatic and gonadal development, sexual performance and behavior (both social and sexual) as well as sex differentiation.
