2011) was used to measure: linear PFOS (n-PFOS), sum of perfluoromethylheptane sulfonic acid isomers (Sm-PFOS), sum of perfluorodimethylhexane sulfonic acid isomers (Sm2-PFOS); linear PFOA (n-PFOA), sum of perfluoromethylheptanoic and perfluorodimethylhexanoic acids (Sb-PFOA); PFHxS, N-ethyl-perfluorooctane sulfonamido acetic acid (Et-PFOSA-AcOH; also known as EtFOSAA), N-methyl-perfluorooctane sulfonamido acetic acid (MePFOSA-AcOH; also known as MeFOSAA), and perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA).
Abbreviations: CI, confidence interval; CM, cardiometabolic; PFHxS, perfluorohexanesulfonic acid; PFOS, perfluorooctanesulfonic acid; PFOA, perfluorooctanoic acid; PFNA, perfluorononanoic acid.
METHODS: We measured serum creatinine, PFOA, perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), and perfluorohexane sulfonate (PFHxS) and calculated eGFR in 9,660 children 1 to < 18 years of age at study enrollment.
PECs include perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) and its precursor perfluorooctane sulfonamide (PFOSA), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), and perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS) (Fromme et al.
KEY WORDS: attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), polyfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFCs).
Polyfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFCs)--including perfluorooctanoic add (PFOA), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), perfluorooccane sulfonic acid (PFOS), and perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS)--are synthetic compounds that bind to proteins in the liver and serum, and are consistently detected in human serum samples.
The research team in the current study investigated the relationship between insulin resistance, cholesterol levels, body size, and exposure to two less studied PFCs, perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), and perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS) in addition to PFOS and PFOA.
Using linear regression to control for covariates, we studied the association between serum concentrations of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA), perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), and perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS) and measures of cholesterol, body size, and insulin resistance.
The CDC detected not just PFOS and PFOA but also PFHxS, perfluorononanoic acid, and perfluorooctane sulfonamide in every U.
Some also contained PFOA, perfluorooctanesulfonamide, or perfluorononanoic acid.
Perfluorooctanesulfonamide (PFOSA), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), and perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA) were detected less frequently.
