Bisphénol A et phtalates : contamination des prélèvements et exposition à l’hôpital

Abstract : The ubiquitous use of phthalates and bisphenol A (BPA) in plastics, medical devices and food packaging materials results in a widespread general population exposure. The ELFE pilot study reports measurement of urinary concentration of phthalate metabolites and BPA in France and provides a first assessment of the exposure of French pregnant women to these compounds. The median concentrations of total and free BPA measured in urine were similar to those measured in previous studies except for the highest concentrations. These results allowed us to identify a contamination with BPA that occurred from medical devices with urine probes when monitoring at delivery. High concentrations of primary metabolite of DEHP (Di-ethyl-hexyl phthalate), compared to other European and American studies were also observed and a very recent exposure at the hospital probably due to perfusion materials was also suspected. All these information about contamination and recent exposure will have to be taken into account for large-scale biomonitoring studies.
