Assessing the Economic and Societal Benefits of SRP-Funded Research

Introduction Since its inception in 1987, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Basic Research and Training Program (SRP) has brought together researchers from the biomedical and environmental science and engineering fields (NIEHS 2018). SRP researchers work together to study the health effects of potentially hazardous substances and to investigate effective and...

Evaluation and Management Strategies for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) in Drinking Water Aquifers: Perspectives from Impacted U.S. Northeast Communities

Introduction Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) exhibit unique chemistry that makes them favorable for use in a wide variety of consumer and industrial products and applications (Kissa 2001). This same chemistry has led to limitations in using traditional environmental chemistry and engineering principles and techniques to understand and manage risks associated with their environmental re...

Maternal Peripartum Serum DDT/E and Urinary Pyrethroid Metabolite Concentrations and Child Infections at 2 Years in the VHEMBE Birth Cohort

 Introduction To control mosquito vectors, malaria control programs in 85 predominantly low- and middle-income countries apply insecticides directly to the inside walls of homes, a process known as indoor residual spraying (IRS). Consequently, approximately 106 million people may inadvertently become exposed to IRS insecticides (World Health Organization [WHO] 2016). Fetal exposure to insectici...

Exposure to Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Accelerated DNA Methylation Aging

 Introduction Aging is related to a progressive decline of physical, psychological, and social functions and a great risk of many disabilities and diseases. Human bodies age at different rates. Both genetic and environmental factors are among the determinants of aging (de Magalhães et al. 2012). In recent years, a growing body of evidence suggested that […]

Method to Remove Mycoplasma Contamination from Virus Stocks

Mycoplasma are a form of bacteria that are commonly found as contaminants in cell cultures. They adversely affect cell line growth rates and viral vaccine production. Mycoplasma contamination is a challenge for the vaccine industry and virology researchers. Current commercial reagents or kits only temporarily inhibit the growth of mycoplasma, but cannot eliminate the contaminants. CDC has develop...

Novel Peptide of Streptococcus pneumoniae Surface Adhesion A (PsaA) Protein Associated with Adherence and Uses Thereof – for Vaccine Candidate, Therapeutic and Diagnostic Development

Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumonia), bacteria commonly referred to as pneumococcus, are a significant cause of disease resulting in 1.5 million deaths every year worldwide according to the World Health Organization. The major types of pneumococcal disease are pneumonia (lung infection), bacteremia (bloodstream infection), and meningitis (infection of the tissue covering of the brain and spinal...

Erratum: “Hydroxylated Polybrominated Biphenyl Ethers Exert Estrogenic Effects via Nongenomic G Protein–Coupled Estrogen Receptor Mediated Pathways”

Related EHP Article  In this paper, the title should be “Hydroxylated Polybrominated Diphenyl Ethers Exert Estrogenic Effects via Nongenomic G Protein–Coupled Estrogen Receptor Mediated Pathways,” with “Diphenyl” replacing “Biphenyl.” In addition, a second corresponding author was omitted. This section should read as follows: Address correspondence to L...

Prenatal Exposure to Perfluoroalkyl Substances and IQ Scores at Age 5; a Study in the Danish National Birth Cohort

 Introduction Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) are a group of synthetic fluorine-containing compounds that have been widely used in commercial and manufacturing products since the 1950s for the treatment of paper, clothing, carpets, food packing material, and kitchenware (Houde et al. 2006). PFASs are extremely resistant to biotransformation and environmental degradation (Houde et al...

Test vaccine active against many HIV strains

An experimental HIV vaccine prompted animal immune systems to form antibodies that neutralize dozens of HIV strains. A study of the test vaccine in people is being planned.

Many with mild traumatic brain injury don’t receive follow-up care

A study suggests that people with long-term symptoms from concussions may not be receiving treatments that could improve their physical and mental health.

Test predicts whether chemotherapy will help early-stage breast cancer patients

Among women with the most common type of breast cancer, those with certain genetic risk scores didn’t benefit from receiving chemotherapy in addition to hormone therapy.

Health Impacts of Citywide and Localized Power Outages in New York City

 Introduction Climate change is expected to increase average summer temperatures, as well as the frequency of heat-waves and severe storms (Diffenbaugh et al. 2013; IPCC 2007). With these changes, an increase in power outages may occur due to increased numbers of high-electricity-demand days in the summer and storm-related damage (Horton et al. 2010). Power outages pose […]

Evaluation of the Impact of Ambient Temperatures on Occupational Injuries in Spain

 Introduction The health effects of temperatures have been extensively studied, particularly regarding mortality and morbidity (Basu 2009; Gasparrini et al. 2015b). A study conducted in 13 countries estimated that 7.29% of total mortality can be attributable to cold temperatures and 0.42% to heat (Gasparrini et al. 2015b). So far, the majority of the studies […]

HIV-1 NL4-3 gp120 secreting CHO Cells

A Chinese hamster ovary cell line that expresses a secreted form of the gp120 gene of an HIV isolate designated NL4-3. The cell line secretes the protein in a constitutive manner into the culture supernatant. Details for this material may be found in the NIH AIDS Reagent Program Catalog (Catalog# 4125): https://www.aidsreagent.org/reagentdetail.cfm?t=cell_lines&id=308.

HIV-1 MW959 gp140 secreting CHO Cells

A Chinese hamster ovary cell line that expresses a secreted form of the gp160 gene of an HIV isolated designated MW959. The gene is truncated near the carboxy terminus of the extracellular domain to facilitate secretion and is therefore designated "gp140". The cell line secretes the protein in a constitutive manner into the culture supernatant. Details for this material may be found in the NIH AID...
