International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. "Endocrine Disruptors and Human Health". Karen Phillips- Guest Editor. This special issue focuses on proposed molecular mechanisms by which endocrine disruptors adversely affect human health. Drawing from experimental, epidemiological and other data, articles explore gene-environment interactions, epigenetics, molecular signalling and receptor-ligand interactions.
