Shellfish and residual chemical contaminants: hazards, monitoring, and health risk assessment along French coasts.

Reviews of environmental contamination and toxicology

Guéguen M, Amiard JC, Arnich N, Badot PM, Claisse D, Guérin T, Vernoux JP.
PMID: 21541848
Rev Environ Contam Toxicol. 2011;213:55-111. doi: 10.1007/978-1-4419-9860-6_3.

In this review, we address the identification of residual chemical hazards in shellfish collected from the marine environment or in marketed shellfish. Data, assembled on the concentration of contaminants detected, were compared with the appropriate regulatory and food safety...

Reviews of environmental contamination and toxicology

Shibamoto T, Yasuhara A, Katami T.
PMID: 17432330
Rev Environ Contam Toxicol. 2007;190:1-41. doi: 10.1007/978-0-387-36903-7_1.

There has been great concern about dioxins-polychlorinated dibenzo dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzo furans (PCDFs), and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)-causing contamination in the environment because the adverse effects of these chemicals on human health have been known for many years. Possible...

Effect-directed analysis of key toxicants in European river basins a review.

Environmental science and pollution research international

Brack W, Klamer HJ, López de Alda M, Barceló D.
PMID: 17352126
Environ Sci Pollut Res Int. 2007 Jan;14(1):30-8. doi: 10.1065/espr2006.08.329.

BACKGROUND: Extensive monitoring programs on chemical contamination are run in many European river basins. With respect to the implementation of the European Union (EU) Water Framework Directive (WFD), these programs are increasingly accompanied by monitoring the ecological status of...

Pt(II)-Catalyzed Intramolecular Reaction of Furans with Alkynes This work was supported by the DGICYT (project PB97-0002) and the MCyT (predoctoral fellowship to B.M.-M.). We also acknowledge Johnson Matthey PLC for a generous loan of PtCl(2). .

Acetylenes in the Superbase-Promoted Assembly of Carbocycles and Heterocycles.

Accounts of chemical research

Trofimov BA, Schmidt EY.
PMID: 29668261
Acc Chem Res. 2018 May 15;51(5):1117-1130. doi: 10.1021/acs.accounts.7b00618. Epub 2018 Apr 18.

In this Account, we briefly discuss the recently discovered and rapidly developing superbase-promoted self-organization reactions of several equivalents of acetylenes and ketones to afford complex compounds that represent promising synthetic building blocks common in natural products. Notably, acetylenes play...

Thyroid hormone metabolism and environmental chemical exposure.

Environmental health : a global access science source

Leijs MM, ten Tusscher GW, Olie K, van Teunenbroek T, van Aalderen WM, de Voogt P, Vulsma T, Bartonova A, Krayer von Krauss M, Mosoiu C, Riojas-Rodriguez H, Calamandrei G, Koppe JG.
PMID: 22759492
Environ Health. 2012 Jun 28;11:S10. doi: 10.1186/1476-069X-11-S1-S10.

BACKGROUND: Polychlorinated dioxins and -furans (PCDD/Fs) and polychlorinated-biphenyls (PCBs) are environmental toxicants that have been proven to influence thyroid metabolism both in animal studies and in human beings. In recent years polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) also have been found...

Development of a neurotoxic equivalence scheme of relative potency for assessing the risk of PCB mixtures.

Regulatory toxicology and pharmacology : RTP

Simon T, Britt JK, James RC.
PMID: 17475378
Regul Toxicol Pharmacol. 2007 Jul;48(2):148-70. doi: 10.1016/j.yrtph.2007.03.005. Epub 2007 Mar 31.

PCBs produce adverse effects in humans and animals by several modes of action. The first mode of action is binding of coplanar or mono-ortho-PCBs to the aryl hydrocarbon (Ah) receptor leading to effects associated with the activation of this...

[Thyroid hormone level in children in the area of a toxic waste incinerator in South Essen].
