Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (ET&C) publishes original experimental or theoretical work that synthesizes knowledge, data, and evidence that predicts, measures, and assesses the fate and effects of chemical contaminants or non-chemical stressors on organisms or to ecosystems in an ecotoxicological context.

Papers published in ET&C must further the scientific knowledge in aquatic, terrestrial, plant, or environmental toxicology, environmental chemistry, or hazard/risk assessment. ET&C is a journal of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC).

Per‐ and Polyfluoroalkyl Substance Toxicity and Human Health Review: Current State of Knowledge and Strategies for Informing Future Research

  •  606-630
  •  5 October 2020

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Many health effects have been reported in association with or due to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) exposures in humans and toxicologic models. Species concordance of effects is evident for a handful of legacy PFAS. With hundreds of PFAS in commerce that lack exposure and health effects data, contemporary and novel methods must be implemented to inform exposed communities, risk assessors, and concerned citizens and prioritize those most likely to affect human health.
