First-Trimester Urinary Bisphenol A Concentration in Relation to Anogenital Distance, an Androgen-Sensitive Measure of Reproductive Development, in Infant Girls

Conclusion: BPA may have toxic effects on the female reproductive system in humans, as it does in animal models. Higher first-trimester BPA exposure was associated with significantly shorter AGD in daughters, suggesting that BPA may alter the hormonal environment of the female fetus. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP875 Received: 27 July 2016 Revised: 18 January 2017 Accepted: 19 January 2017 Published: 11 July 2017 Address correspondence to E.

Authors: Lamy S, Houivet E, Benichou J, Marret S, Thibaut F, Perinatal network of Upper-Normandy Abstract Many pregnant women, in the world, drink caffeine-containing beverages. Maternal caffeine consumption during pregnancy may have adverse effects on foetus but results are conflicting. Our goals were to estimate the prevalence of caffeine use in a cohort of French pregnant women using maternal self-reports and to evaluate the association between caffeine consumption during pregnancy and delivery and newborn characteristics. All pregnant women who gave birth in a large French urban area during a limited period of ...

CONCLUSION: Majority of the viewers used mobile phones, and mobile phones and tablets had significantly longer average view durations as compared to computer/TV. YouTube and wireless devices may have potential as internet based psychiatric emergency outreach platform. This study calls for further research to explore the effectiveness of using social media and wireless devices for psychiatric emergency education prior to ED arrival, particularly in minority populations with cultural barriers to health care.

AbstractThree BODIPY ‐peptide conjugates designed to target the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) at the extracellular domain were synthesized and their specificity for binding to EGFR was investigated. Peptide sequences containing seven amino acids, GLARLLT (2) and KLARLLT (3), and 13 amino acids, GYHWYGYTPQNVI (4), were conjugated to carboxyl BODIPY dye (1) by amide bond formation in up to 73% yields. The BODIPY ‐peptide conjugates and their “parent” peptides were determined to bind to EGFR experimentally using SPR analysis, and were further investigated using computational methods (AUTODOCK). Resul...

AbstractWe study interdependent risks in security, and shed light on the economic and policy implications of increasing security interdependence in presence of reactive attackers. We investigate the impact of potential public policy arrangements on the security of a group of interdependent organizations, namely, airports. Focusing on security expenditures and costs to society, as assessed by a social planner, to individual airports and to attackers, we first develop a game ‐theoretic framework, and derive explicit Nash equilibrium and socially optimal solutions in the airports network. We then conduct numerical experimen...

The objective of this study was to investigate whether the association between family income and adult self-rated health in Canada is causal in nature. The data came from the 2012, 2014 and 2016 waves of the Longitudinal and International Study of Adults linked to current and historical family income data from the Canada Revenue Agency. We used fixed effects models to describe associations between changes in self-rated health between 2012, 2014 and 2016 and changes in equivalized family income between (i) 2011, 2013 and 2015, (ii) 2008, 2009 and 2010, i(ii) 2005, 2006 and 2007, (iv) 2002, 2003 and 2004 and (v) 1999, 2000 a...
