Bisphenol A; BPA
No effects on mortality or number of juveniles were observed in a 28-day potworm (Enchytraeus crypticus) reproduction study (Moser and Egeler, 2007a; Staples et al., 2010). A NOEC of 100 mg/kg dw was determined.
In addition to performing a chronic study with earthworms, Johnson et
al. (2005a) performed a short-term, acute study. However, the acute
study is considered unreliable for a number of reasons, including
that the control survival did not meet the validity criteria and there
were no effects in the chronic study at doses that caused mortality in
the acute study. The inconsistency in results prompted a new, fully
valid chronic study with the potworm Enchytraeus crypticus (Moser and
Egeler, 2007a). Final concentrations of Bisphenol A in the test systems,
consisting of artificial soil, were 1.0, 9.5, 17.1, 30.9, 55.6, and 100
mg test item/kg soil dw (dry weight). No effects on mortality or number
of juveniles were observed at the highest dose tested of 100 mg/kg dw.
This is in agreement with the findings from the earthworm chronic study
(Johnson et al., 2005) where the NOEC of 100 mg/kg was also established.
