    • Antibody response to booster vaccination with tetanus and diphtheria in adults exposed to perfluorinated alkylates 

      Kielsen, Katrine; Shamim, Zaiba; Ryder, Lars P.; Nielsen, Flemming; Grandjean, Philippe; Budtz-Jørgensen, Esben; Heilmann, Carsten (Informa UK Limited, 2015)
      Recent studies suggest that exposure to perfluorinated alkylate substances (PFASs) may induce immunosuppression in humans and animal models. In this exploratory study, twelve healthy adult volunteers were recruited. With ...
    • Antioxidative enzyme activities in human erythrocytes. 

      Andersen, HR; Nielsen, JB; Nielsen, F; Grandjean, Philippe (American Association for Clinical Chemistry, 1997)
      Reliable and standardized methods are necessary to determine the expression of antioxidative enzymes and their role in maintaining health. In addition, the variability of the enzyme activities within the general population ...
    • Marine Food Pollutants as a Risk Factor for Hypoinsulinemia and Type 2 Diabetes 

      Grandjean, Philippe; Henriksen, Jan Erik; Choi, Anna Lai; Petersen, Maria Skaalum; Dalgård, Christine; Nielsen, Flemming; Weihe, Pal (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2011)
      Background: Some persistent environmental chemicals are suspected of causing an increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus, a disease particularly common after the age of 70. This concern was examined in a cross-sectional ...
    • Partition of Environmental Chemicals between Maternal and Fetal Blood and Tissues 

      Needham, Larry L.; Grandjean, Philippe; Heinzow, Birger; Jørgensen, Poul J.; Nielsen, Flemming; Patterson, Donald G.; Sjödin, Andreas; Turner, Wayman E.; Weihe, Pal (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011)
      Passage of environmental chemicals across the placenta has important toxicological consequences, as well as for choosing samples for analysis and for interpreting the results. To obtain systematic data, we collected in ...
    • Prenatal exposure to persistent organochlorine pollutants is associated with high insulin levels in 5-year-old girls 

      Tang-Péronard, Jeanett L.; Heitmann, Berit L.; Jensen, Tina K.; Vinggaard, Anne M.; Madsbad, Sten; Steuerwald, Ulrike; Grandjean, Philippe; Weihe, Pal; Nielsen, Flemming; Andersen, Helle R. (Elsevier BV, 2015)
      Background Several persistent organochlorine pollutants (POPs) possess endocrine disrupting abilities, thereby potentially leading to an increased risk of obesity and metabolic diseases, especially if the exposure occurs ...
    • Serum Concentrations of Polyfluoroalkyl Compounds in Faroese Whale Meat Consumers 

      Weihe, Pal; Kato, Kayoko; Calafat, Antonia M.; Nielsen, Flemming; Wanigatunga, Amal A.; Needham, Larry L.; Grandjean, Philippe (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2008)
      To learn the extent of human exposure to polyfluoroalkyl compounds (PFCs) in a remote fishing population, we measured, in Faroese children and pregnant women, the serum concentrations of nine PFCs, including perfluorooctane ...
    • Spermatogenic capacity in fertile men with elevated exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls 

      Petersen, M.S.; Halling, J.; Weihe, Pal; Jensen, T.K.; Grandjean, Philippe; Nielsen, Flemming; Jørgensen, N. (Elsevier BV, 2015)
      Background Endocrine disrupting industrial chemicals, such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), are suspected to adversely affect male reproductive functions. Objectives The Faroe Islands community exhibits an ...
    • Within-person reproducibility of red blood cell mercury over a 10- to 15-year period among women in the Nurses’ Health Study II 

      Kioumourtzoglou, Marianthi-Anna; Roberts, Andrea L; Nielsen, Flemming; Tworoger, Shelley Slate; Grandjean, Philippe; Weisskopf, Marc G. (Springer Nature, 2014)
      Background Most epidemiologic studies of methylmercury (MeHg) health effects rely on a single measurement of a MeHg biomarker to assess long-term exposures. Long-term reproducibility data are, therefore, needed to assess ...
