Xenohormone transactivities are inversely associated to serum POPs in Inuit

Research

Tanja Kruger , Mandana Ghisari , Philip S. Hjelmborg , Bente Deutch and Eva C. Bonefeld-Jorgensen

Environmental Health 2008, 7:38doi:10.1186/1476-069X-7-38

Published: 15 July 2008

Abstract (provisional)

Background

The persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are highly lipophilic and resistant to biodegradation and found in e.g. seafood and marine mammals. Greenlandic Inuit have high intake of marine food and thus high POP burden that varies according to local conditions and dietary preference. We do for the very first time report the serum POP related non-steroidal xenohormone activity of Inuit across Greenland. The aims were 1) to determine the integrated xenohormone bioactivities as an exposure biomarker of the actual lipophilic serum POP mixture measuring the effect on estrogen (ER) and androgen receptor (AR) transactivity in citizens from different Greenlandic districts and 2) to evaluate associations to serum POP markers (14 PCBs and 10 pesticides) and lifestyle characteristics.
