U.S. Health and Human Services’ National Toxicity Program has issued a research report on the toxicity of bisphenol A (BPA) in rats. The study “was designed to characterize and evaluate the toxicological potential of BPA following perinatal only or chronic exposure in rats under the conditions of a chronic, extended-dose response design.” The report is one component of Consortium Linking Academic and Regulatory Insights on BPA Toxicity (CLARITY-BPA), which will issue a final report in the autumn of 2019 compiling the National Toxicity Program’s results with reports from university researchers.
