  • Industry responds to Melzer study on alleged effects of BPA

    The Melzer et al study is incapable of assessing or establishing a cause-effect relationship between BPA exposure and coronary artery disease. It is based on statistical models that cannot confirm such a link and it was performed on one single urine sample, giving no information on BPA exposure over the duration of the study (i.e. 10 years).

  • Réponse du groupe PC/BPA à l’étude sur l’action insulinotrope rapide du BPA

    Les résultats de l'étude in vitro 'Rapid Insulinotropic Action of Low Doses of Bisphenol-A on Mouse and Human Islets of Langerhans: Role of Estrogen Receptor β' doivent être interprétés dans le contexte de la grande quantité de données in vivo à disposition. Les conclusions tirées des observations de cette étude ne sont pas confirmées par les résultats d'études exhaustives basées sur les bonnes pratiques de laboratoire. Elles ne sont pas non plus cohérentes avec les résultats publiés précédemment par le même groupe de chercheurs sur le même sujet. Il serait donc nécessaire d'analyser en détail la puissance statistique et les méthodologies utilisées, avant de se lancer prématurément dans des hypothèses. En outre, les données obtenues par une étude in vitro ne peuvent pas être utilisées directement pour tirer des conclusions à propos des êtres humains.

    ANSES review on BPA: ANSES has interpreted data on BPA differently than EFSA and other authorities. Exposure to BPA from food contact materials is very low and poses no risk to human health. Studies that use non-oral exposure routes, considered by ANSES, are not appropriate for risk assessment.
