Metabolism in Monkeys – Pharmacokinetics of bisphenol A in neonatal and adult rhesus monkeys

Author: Doerge et al.

This study on the pharmacokinetics of BPA in monkeys, is conceptually similar to the study on rats mentioned above by Doerge et al. (2010), but of more significance since monkeys are biologically closer to humans. The study found, “These observations imply that any toxicological effect observed in rats from early postnatal exposures to BPA could over-predict those possible in primates of the same age, based on significantly higher internal exposures and overall immaturity at birth.”
