Selected articles in Fetal and Developmental Exposure

New Content ItemParticle exposure and the related gene-environment interactions during fetal and early postnatal development can affect development and disease risks through to adult life. The PPToxVI conference, taking place in May, aims to assess the weight of evidence and highlight new achievements on the effects of prenatal and early postnatal exposure to toxicants, as well their effects on the development.

This article collection from Particle and Fibre Toxicology showcases the top accessed articles published in the last two years relating to fetal and developmental exposure. Articles in this collection were selected by the Editor in Chief Prof Flemming Cassee.
