The reproductive toxicology of ammonium perfluorooctanoate (APFO) in the rat



The reproductive toxicology of ammonium perfluorooctanoate (APFO) in the rat



Toxicology 196(1-2): 95-116



Ammonium perfluorooctanoate (APFO) is a surfactant used primarily as an aid in processing various fluoropolymers. Many toxicology and epidemiological studies have been conducted with APFO; however, no specific information regarding functional reproduction was previously available. Therefore, the potential reproductive toxicity of APFO across two generations of offspring was studied using current EPA OPPTS 870.3800 guidelines.
