The Impact of Endocrine Disruptors on Endocrine Targets

Description

The potential effect of “endocrine disruptors” (EDCs) on human health and the proven effect on wildlife have received considerable attention from the scientific community. Endocrine disruption represents one of the most controversial environmental issues despite the fact that many substances, both natural and artificial, have been recognized to interfere with endocrine signaling pathways. Such interactions have been documented both in laboratory animal studies as well as in vitro. However, in humans there is limited evidence of endocrine disruption caused by EDCs.

We invite authors to submit original research articles as well as review articles related to mechanisms by which EDCs affect endocrine systems. We are interested in articles that explore aspects of endocrine disruption in humans, in animals, and in vitro models. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Male reproductive function
  • Female reproductive function
  • Endocrine disruptors and endometriosis
  • Effect of endocrine disruptors on placental function
  • Endocrine disruptors and hormone-dependent cancer
  • Endocrine disruptors and the obesity epidemic
  • HPA- axis (hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis) as a target for EDCs
  • HPG-axis (hypothalamus-pituitary-gonadal axis) as a target for EDCs
  • EDCs and thyroid function
  • Environmental endocrine disruptors (EEDs), ovotoxicity, and preimplantation embryo development

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ije/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/ije/endis/ according to the following timetable:
