Selected articles in Fetal and Developmental Exposure for PPTOX 2018

New Content Item (1)The environment at fetal and early postnatal development stages is of crucial importance for gene expression and can affect development and disease risks through to adult life. During these vulnerable stages, the timing of exposure and the related gene-environment interactions are key. 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 Environmental Health showcases the top accessed articles recently published in the journal relating to fetal and developmental exposure. Articles in this collection were selected by the Editor's in Chief Prof Philippe Grandjean and Prof David Ozonoff.

  1. Content type: Research

    Glyphosate (GLY) is the most heavily used herbicide worldwide but the extent of exposure in human pregnancy remains unknown. Its residues are found in the environment, major crops, and food items that humans, ...
