New EU research project investigates possible combination effects of chemicals in the womb

Your substances


Already during pregnancy, the unborn child is exposed to many different chemical compounds. Up to now, however, mainly individual substances have been tested for potential health risks. A European team with the participation of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) is breaking new ground here. The "Panoramix" research project is inter alia looking into whether mixtures of different substances have harmful effects on unborn and developing children that are not adequately covered by the existing assessment system. The project, led by the Technical University of Denmark, will run for four years and is supported by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 programme with €4.4 million. Panoramix does not involve animal testing
