Axe 4 – Human exposure and pathologies
Exposures and epidemiology
Jean-Marc Bonmatin, Pierre Lebailly, Joost Schanstra
Sensitive and reliable analytical methods are developed to measure actual exposure to SDHI. They will be used to measure human exposure through food (beverages, fruits, cereals, vegetables, etc.). Some exposures related to bee health will also be measured (honey, pollen).
On the epidemiological level, we are seeking to determine whether urinary SDHI levels in cohorts of farmers and subjects from the general population are correlated with the incidence of cancers and chronic kidney diseases.
