Early exposure to dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene, breastfeeding and asthma at age six.
These are bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol C (BPC), both used as plasticizers; the flame retardant tetrachlorobisphenol A (TCBPA); the preservative butylparaben; the surfactant 4-tert-octylphenol (4-OP); the UV filter benzophenone-2 (BP-2); the pesticides 2,2-bis(p-hydroxyphenyl)-1,1,1-trichloroethane (HPTE, a methoxychlor metabolite), dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE, a DDT metabolite), and chlordecone; benzylbutylphthalate (BBP); the phytoestrogen ferutinine; and the growth stimulant [alpha]-zearalanol ([alpha]-ZA), a double reduction product of the mycoestrogen zearalenone.
For example, many epidemiological studies have used serum dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) levels as a proxy for exposure to DDT (Brody and Rudel 2008).
Biomarkers include POPS--PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE), hexachlorobenzene (HCB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs)--in blood samples, nonpersistent chemicals--phthalates, phenols, organophosphate pesticides--in urine samples, metals in blood, and cotinine as a biomarker of ETS exposure (Table 1).
A small nested case-control (n = 75 cases, n = 75 controls) study reported that higher maternal serum PCB and dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE) concentrations were associated with increased odds of ASD diagnosis (Cheslack-Postava et al.
PCBs and DDT [or its metabolite dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (p,p -DDE)] have been associated with differences in measures of sexual maturation in girls in some studies (Denham et al.
