Updated Litagion agent profiles based on newly published science
In this release, all Litagion agent profiles have been updated to reflect the most recently published peer-reviewed science. Notable scientific studies added to CoMeta since the last release include:
- Perfluoro-n-nonanoic acid (PFNA): A Swedish study focused on women linked blood levels of PFNA to liver dysfunction.
- Perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS): An analysis using mother-child pairs from Project Viva in Boston found children with prenatal exposure to PFOS had lower mid-childhood visual-motor scores.
In addition, we highlight the following changes to the components of Litagion agent risk resulting from recently published peer-reviewed science:
|Litagion agent||Risk category change||Overall risk change|
|Dibutyl phthalate (DBP)||Projected science risk changed from Medium-Low (light green) to Medium (yellow)||None|
|Methylparaben||Projected science risk changed from Medium (yellow) to Medium-High (orange)||None|
