LITERATURE REVIEW AND REPORT ON THE POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS OF PERFLUOROALKYL COMPOUNDS, MAINLY PERFLUOROOCTANE SULFONATE (PFOS)
Priestly, B. Australian Centre for Human Health Risk Assessment (ACHHRA), School of Public Health & Preventive Medicine, Monash University. 44 pp, 2017

This report is an extension of reports prepared in 2015 and 2016 to review the literature on the health effects of PFOS and related perfluoralkyl substances (PFASs). It summarizes new studies published mainly in the period September 2016 to November 2017 and comments on recent Australian regulatory actions, including the February 2017 updating of Tolerable Daily Intake estimates for PFOS, PFOA, and PFHxS developed by the Australian food regulator. About 50 new epidemiological studies are summarized in a table format, with added comments on the extent to which these new reports extend the knowledge base of the health effects of PFAS. The new epidemiology studies have not added any substantially new or concerning information on the potential health effects of PFOS. https://www2.health.vic.gov.au/Api/downloadmedia/{A8D0C419-A492-4B60-A41B-3E0A62A353FE}
