Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Exposure to endocrine disruptors or endocrine toxicants has been associated with a range of adverse health effects in laboratory animals and wildlife. "Endocrine disruption" refers to negative interference with the endocrine system leading to extra-homeostatic fluctuations in hormone levels that may, in turn, trigger adverse health outcomes.  In humans potential adverse health effects include infertility, abnormal prenatal and childhood development, reproductive cancers along with emerging health concerns (e.g. obesity, diabetes, metabolism disorders, abnormal neurodevelopment).

This special issue will focus on proposed molecular mechanisms by which endocrine disruptors adversely affect human health. Drawing from experimental, epidemiological and other data, articles which explore gene-environment interactions, epigenetics, molecular signalling and receptor-ligand interactions are particularly welcome.  Similarly, articles describing biologically plausible mechanisms by which endocrine disruptors may contribute to emerging adverse human health effects are also encouraged.
