This review summarizes the most recent scientific literature and regulations regarding analytical chemistry, toxicology, epidemiology, exposure, and risk assessment of melamine in infant formula. For analyses, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, high-performance liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis, gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry

Melamine resins are derived from the heterocyclic compound triaminotriazine, C3H6N6. Similar to proteins in structure and reactivity, water-soluble melamine resins can be used as water-embedding media for electron microscopy (Bachhuber and Frösch, 1983). The idea behind this approach was to

Recent outbreaks of nephrolithiasis and acute kidney injury among children in China have been linked to ingestion of milk-based infant formula contaminated with melamine. These cases provide evidence in humans for the nephrotoxicity of melamine, which previously had been described
Rishikesh P Dalal et al.
Nature reviews. Nephrology, 7(5), 267-274 (2011-03-23)
Several well-documented outbreaks of melamine poisoning have occurred in both animals and humans during the past 7 years, which led to the identification of melamine and cyanuric acid as nephrotoxins. This Review provides an overview of the known experimental and
