    ..Hence, the ecological consequences of pharmaceutical residues in the water bodies near CAFOs warrant further investigation. ..

    ..Our results showed that some BP analogs might influence the thyroid endocrine system, and such perturbation appeared to be enhanced in the presence of E2. ..

    ..Endocrine disruption effects in fish warrant further investigation particularly for their ecological implications. ..

    ..Further in vivo and in vitro studies will be needed to investigate the effect of co-polymer on endocrine disruption. ..

    ..The results demonstrated that BaCl2 could modulate gene transcriptions and hormone production of the HPG axis in a sex-dependent way, which could cause adverse effects on reproduction and the development of offspring. ..

    ..The present study indicated that BPAF exposure alone alters transcription of genes associated with the thyroid endocrine system, and combination with SMX could increase the endocrine disrupting effect of BPAF. ..
  8. Lee J, Park N, Kho Y, Lee K, Ji K. Phototoxicity and chronic toxicity of methyl paraben and 1,2-hexanediol in Daphnia magna. Ecotoxicology. 2017;26:81-89 pubmed publisher
    ..Although acute and chronic toxicities of 1,2-H were generally lower than those of MP, its effects on other aquatic organisms should not be ignored. Further studies are needed to identify other mechanisms of MP phototoxicity. ..

    ..We found that chronic exposure to cefadroxil and cefradine impaired growth and reproduction in a freshwater invertebrate and fish, and altered the levels of sex hormones and genes associated with the HPG axis in fish. ..
