review articles for peer-review and possible publication:

Special Issue: Endocrine Disruptors and Human Health
Guest Editor: Prof. Dr. Karen Phillips
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2014

Dear Colleagues,

Exposure to endocrine disruptors or endocrine toxicants has been associated
with a range of adverse health effects in laboratory animals and wildlife.
"Endocrine disruption" refers to negative interference with the endocrine
system leading to extra-homeostatic fluctuations in hormone levels that may,
in turn, trigger adverse health outcomes. In humans potential adverse health
effects include infertility, abnormal prenatal and childhood development,
reproductive cancers along with emerging health concerns (e.g. obesity,
diabetes, metabolism disorders, abnormal neurodevelopment).

This special issue will focus on proposed molecular mechanisms by which
endocrine disruptors adversely affect human health. Drawing from
experimental, epidemiological and other data, articles which explore gene-
environment interactions, epigenetics, molecular signalling and receptor-ligand
interactions are particularly welcome. Similarly, articles describing biologically
plausible mechanisms by which endocrine disruptors may contribute to
emerging adverse human health effects are also encouraged.

Dr. Karen P. Phillips
Guest Editor

This Special Issue will be fully open access. We encourage authors
to send us their tentative title and short abstract to the Editorial Office
