Final Report - DEVNERTOX (Toxic theats to the developing nervous system: in vivo and in vitro studies on the effects of mixture of neurotoxic substances potentially contaminating food)

Project ID: 506143
Funded under: FP6-FOOD

Abstract

This is the final report for the DEVNERTOX project, which focused on generating experimental models to improve developmental neurotoxicity testing and risk assessment for neurotoxic food contaminants. Three compounds have been studied alone and in combination, methylmercury (MeHg) and two polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) with different chemical properties; the non-dioxin-like di-ortho-substituted PCB 153 and the coplanar dioxin-like PCB 126.

Images, graphs and tables are included in the report, which covers the actions undertaken and their conclusions.
