  1. PCBs, Phthalates and Male Reproductive Health
    Russ Hauser; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Based on our results, the optimal exposure assessment strategy for the proposed study is to collect three urine samples from all subjects on day 1, 2 and 31 of their study participation. ..
  2. Maternal Pesticide Exposure and Pregnancy Outcomes
    Russ Hauser; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Since the etiology of infertility and early pregnancy loss remains largely unexplained, the identification of potential environmental risk factors will have large public health significance. ..
