Study on reprotoxic chemicals
A range of legislative instruments are in place at EU level to manage and minimise the risks from occupational exposure to carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances. Carcinogenic chemicals can cause or promote cancers. Mutagenic chemicals can cause genetic mutations. Reprotoxic chemicals can damage the reproductive process. This study assesses a number of options for moderning the current EU legislation, in particular regarding reprotoxic chemicals Source:
Reproductive and developmental toxicity of carbon-based nanomaterials
A literature review We summarized the findings of reproductive and developmental toxicity studies on carbon-based nanomaterials (CNMs). Placental transfer of fullerenes in rats and single-walled (SW) and multi-walled (MW) CNTs in mice was shown after intravenous injection. SWCNTs appeared to be embryolethal and teratogenic in mice when given by intravenous injection and induced death and growth retardation in chicken embryos. In mice-administered MWCNTs, fetal malformations after intravenous and intraperitoneal injections and intratracheal instillation, fetal loss after intravenous injection, behavioral...
Two reproduction toxicity evaluations – Chloramphenicol and indium and its compounds
The Health Council of the Netherlands has reviewed chloramphenicol and indium compounds. Indium is used in bearings for cars and aircrafts, in solders and low-melting alloys, and in nuclear reactor control rods. Indium and its compounds, including indium antimonide (InSb), indium arsenide (InAs), and indium phosphide (InP), find application in semiconductor devices, transistors, and transistor materials. Indium oxide is used for colouring glass. Indium sulphate is used in electroplating, and radioisotopes of indium and indium compounds (including indium trichloride) are employed in the treatment...
Six substances chimiques dangereuses seront interdites dans l’UE d'ici à 2015
La Commission européenne a décidé jeudi d'interdire "dans les trois à cinq ans à venir" six substances utilisées dans l'industrie en raison de leurs dangers pour la santé. Les six substances sont le musk xylène, le diaminodiphénylméthane (MDA), l'hexabromocyclododécane (HBCDD), le bis (2-éthylexyl) phtalate (DEHP), le benzyl butyl phtalate (BBP) et le dibutyl phtalate (DBP). Ces six substances chimiques ont été identifiées comme cancérigènes ou toxiques pour...
