Endocrine Disruptor Test Method Evaluations
Endocrine disruptors are substances that can interfere with the normal function of the endocrine (hormone) system, and often these interactions are with hormone receptors. It's not yet clear what effects these types of substances might have in humans, but there is evidence suggesting endocrine disruptors could cause human health problems. NICEATM is working with federal agencies to develop non-animal test methods and approaches to identify potential endocrine disruptors.
