Pharmaceuticals and personal care products

ays German researcher Thomas Heberer. The concentration of clofibric acid in Berlin tap water correlates well with the levels of the compound in contaminated water sources. The German environmental agency found that this level of drug residue is not toxic to people. Comparative studies of sewage effluents in Greece indicated "significant differences" in the composition of drug residues. (T. Heberer, Institute of Food Chemistry, Technical University of Berlin, Germany; ENVR 35; Monday, March 27, 10:55 a.m.; Hilton Imperial A, Ballroom Level. See page 105 in the final program.)

  • Synthetic musks in human tissues and breast milk: Sewage treatment plants do not effectively degrade the synthetic musks that impart fragrance to many cosmetics and detergents, says German researcher Thomas Heberer. They are found at "considerable concentrations" in fatty human tissue and in the milk of nursing mothers, according to Heberer. They also are found at "high concentrations" in the aquatic food chain, especially in urban areas, he notes. (T. Heberer, Institute of Food Chemistry, Technical University of Berlin, Germany; ENVR 37; Monday, March 27, 11:35 a.m.; Hilton Imperial A, Ballroom Level. See page 105 in the final program.)

  • How a compound in the environment enters a cell: Many natural and manmade compounds gain entrance to cells by altering the activity of proteins called p-glycoprotein transporters. No one knows whether this includes compounds in pharmaceuticals and personal care products, says researcher David Epel. If so, he says, "toxic compounds that normally are excluded from cells might enter the cytoplasm and there wreak havoc." (D. Epel, Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University, Garden Grove, Calif.; ENVR 48; Monday, March 27, 3:00 p.m.; Hilton Imperial A, Ballroom Level. See page 106 in the final program.)
