EMSG42: Increase of the robustness of the fish endocrine assay and avoidance of irrelevant endpoints

The objective of this study was to determine the influence of the test items potassium permanganate, 2-methoxyethanol and octanol to reproduction and the endocrine system of fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas). For this purpose, mature male and female fathead minnow were exposed in […]

EMSG38: Review of the Relative Contribution of Industrial Chemicals, Compared to Steroids, in Causing the Sexual Disruption in Wild Fish Populations

Steroidal estrogens, originating principally from human excretion, are likely to play a major role in causing widespread endocrine disruption in wild populations of the roach (Rutilus rutilus), a common cyprinid fish, in rivers contaminated by treated sewage effluents. Given the […]

EMSG21: Endocrine Disruption in the Marine Environment (EDMAR)

The EDMAR programme is investigating whether there is evidence of changes in the reproductive health of marine life and if so, seeks to identify possible causes and potential impacts. Areas for research include: development of methods for the detection of […]

EMSG23: Endocrine Modulating Effects in Fish Along the Elbe River and in Reference Areas. Assessment of Risks Related to the Habitat Conditions and the Natural Variability of Endocrine Functions

The aim of the study is to identify effects caused by endocrine modulation in fish and evaluate these with respect to dysfunction in sex differentiation, development of functional organs as well as fecundity. Another aspect is the determination of the […]

EMSG36: Further Development and Scientific Evaluation of Appropriate Methods for Identification and Characterisation of Toxic Effects of Hormonally Active Substances on Reproduction in Birds as Part of Multi-Generation-Studies

The effects of so-called ”endocrine disruptors” (EDs), i.e. hormone-like acting substances of natural or anthropogenic origin or compounds disturbing the endocrine system by other mechanisms, on reproduction are subject to extensive discussion worldwide. For better identification of such effects, regulatory […]
