Suspect Screening, Prioritization, and Confirmation of Environmental Chemicals in Maternal-Newborn Pairs from San Francisco

During this CHE EDC Strategies Partnershipwebinar, Drs. Tracey Woodruff and Dimitri Abrahamsson will present findings from their new publication, “Suspect Screening, Prioritization, and Confirmation of Environmental Chemicals in Maternal-Newborn Pairs from San Francisco.” Non-targeted analysis and suspect screening have enabled researchers to screen biological samples for a very broad spectrum of chemicals that would previously remain undetected with conventional targeted techniques. Co-investigators of this new study analyzed 30 matched maternal and cord blood samples (n total = 60) from pregnant women in San Francisco and screened them using our non-targeted analysis workflow. The investigators tentatively identified 55 compounds that appeared to not have been previously reported in the literature. The majority of these compounds have limited to no information about their sources or uses. Examples include (i) 1-(1-acetyl-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-4-yl)-3-dodecylpyrrolidine-2,5-dione (known high production volume chemical) (ii) methyl perfluoroundecanoate and 2-perfluorooctyl ethanoic acid (two PFAS compounds); and (iii) Sumilizer GA 80 (plasticizer). Drs. Woodruff and Abrahamsson will close the talk with a discussion on the potential public health implications of the study’s results and future policy and research opportunities.

This webinar is one in a monthly series sponsored by the EDC Strategies Partnership. The EDC Strategies Partnership is co-chaired by Sharyle Patton (Commonweal Biomonitoring Resource Center), Jerry Heindel (Commonweal HEEDS, Healthy Environment and Endocrine Disruptor Strategies), Genon Jensen (HEAL, Health and Environment Alliance), Sarah Howard (HEEDS and the Commonweal Diabetes and Environment Program), and Hannah Donart (Commonweal CHE, Collaborative on Health and the Environment).
