Exposition aux composés perfluorés durant l’enfance et niveau des anticorps vaccinaux à l’âge de 13 ans Volume 17, issue 2, March-April 2018



This news is based on the following article: Grandjean P, Heilmann C, Weihe P, Nielsen F, Mogensen UB, Budtz-Jørgensen E. Serum vaccine antibody concentrations in adolescents exposed to perfluorinated compounds. Environ Health Perspect 2017 ; 125(7) : 077018. doi : 10.1289/EHP275

These researchers, after extending the follow-up of their Faroese birth cohort up to adolescence, have published new results that reinforce previous findings that exposure to perfluorinated compounds adversely affects the production of antibodies in response to vaccination.
