Estrogen-like Component of Plastic Stimulates Growth of Certain Prostate Cancer Cells

put them at higher risk for increased cancer cell growth. “The results we see in cell culture in response to BPA are ready to be moved to appropriate animal models next,?said Dr. Knudsen. The effect of the environmental non-steroidal BPA on human prostate cancer tumor implants in laboratory animal models will shed additional light on whether the synthetic pseudo-estrogen encourages tumor growth in whole animal systems. “We’ll know more about the ‘hormone sensitizing?ability of BPA in prostate cancer cells from studies on animals. It is also important to note that our study demonstrates that the actual dose of BPA exposure may change the biological response,?Dr. Knudsen said. The safety of BPA has been under intense debate for several years, with some arguing that exposure to the chemical among humans is safe, with others contending that it may promote the growth of human tumor cells and alter the growth and development of animals.
