• In this analysis, we observed significant increases in the risk of aggressive prostate cancer associated with 4 insecticides: fonofos (organophosphate), malathion (organophosphate), terbufos (organophosphate), and aldrin (organochlorine). (mdibl.org)
  • Specifically, a previous evaluation in the AHS reported increased risks of aggressive PCa with exposure to aldrin (OC) as well as the organodithioate class of OP insecticides, including fonofos (OP), terbufos (OP), and malathion (OP) [ 12 ]. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Both fonofos (which was taken off the market in 1998) and terbufos are classified by EPA as having "evidence of noncarcinogenicity" for humans. (panna.org)
  • The degradation rates and product distributions of chloropyrifos, fonofos, ethoprop, terbufos, and phorate were not dramatically altered in soils containing microbial populations adapted to rapidly degrade isofenphos. (iastate.edu)
  • To kill earthworms you can use Carbaryl (Sevin), ethoprop (Mocap) and fonofos (Crusade), which are highly toxic to earthworms. (grounds-mag.com)
  • Fonofos is an organothiophosphate insecticide primarily used on corn. (wikipedia.org)

  • Although we did not observe highly significant nucleotide excision repair (NER) single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) main effects, our interaction findings between SNPs tagging ERCC1 and CDK7 and fonofos and carbofuran, respectively, suggest the importance of the NER pathway in prostate cancer risk in the presence of certain pesticide exposures.
