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...
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...
Trial will end within the next few months following an orderly closeout.
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...
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 […]
Phase 1 study will enroll a small group of healthy adult volunteers.
Diabetic ketoacidosis is often the first sign of type 1 diabetes in children who have not yet been diagnosed.
Nearly all of the 27 NIH institutes and centers fund some aspects of child health research.
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...
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...
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...
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...

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.
A study suggests that people with long-term symptoms from concussions may not be receiving treatments that could improve their physical and mental health.
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.
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 […]
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 […]
Accepted scholars begin their fellowship in July/August 2018.
Related EHP Article Air pollution is well known to adversely affect lung1,2 and heart3,4 health. Both animal5 and epidemiologic6,7 studies suggest air pollution may also harm cognition. A study in Environmental Health Perspectives sheds some light on the potential mechanism by which air pollution may affect brain health.8 The authors of the study analyzed […]
Researchers also found that a high T3/T4 ratio was strongly associated with a higher risk for gestational diabetes.
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.
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...
