Biological systems are disturbed by several factors that are defined by the exposome. Environmental substances, including endocrine disruptors (EDs), represent the chemical exposome. These stressors may alter biological systems, that could lead to toxic health effects. Even if scientific evidence provide links between diverse environmental substances and disorders, innovative approaches, including alternative methods to animal testing, are still needed to address the complexity of the chemical mechanisms of action.

Coordinated by Inserm, the European project OBERON aims to develop panels of tests that will – eventually – make it possible to determine with more accuracy and certitude how compounds suspected of being endocrine disruptors might induce metabolic disorders and, ultimately, to identify these compounds.

> News & Press Releases

Joint Launch Event of Projects from the Call ‘New Testing and Screening Methods to Identify Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals’ The current testing tools, including regulatory in vivo tests and novel in vitro assays, do not appropriately identify effects related to certain less studied endocrine-mediated pathways or health outcomes, in which endocrine disruptors may be implicated. The focus of proposals should Read the full article…
