Bisphenol A in human samples: results published, data searchable
Data of a retrospective monitoring study on Bisphenol A (BPA) in 24h-urine samples are published and can now be searched.
The use, the exposure to humans as well as the toxicological relevance of BPA are discussed controversially. For this reason the German Environmental Specimen Bank investigated the temporal trend of total BPA in 600 24h-urine samples of 20-29 year old German students. The time series covers the years 1995 to 2009. BPA was detectable in all samples. The results were published in 2012. These data are now searchable.
In addition, blood plasma samples from 60 students were analyzed for total BPA and unconjugated BPA. In the overwhelming number of samples concentrations were below the limit of quantification.
