Reproduction, fertility, and development

Low doses of bisphenol A can impair postnatal testicular development directly, without affecting hormonal or oxidative stress levels.


PMID 28384430

Abstract

Bisphenol A (BPA) is considered a potent endocrine disruptor, causing changes in the endocrine system due to its oestrogenic activity. Male individuals may be susceptible to endocrine, morphological and physiological alterations during testicular postnatal development. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether exposure to BPA during the peripubertal period can damage testicular development. To this end, male Wistar rats were treated with BPA via gavage at doses of 20 or 200µgkg
