Because of the special selective action on nAChRs in central nervous system of insects, and versatility in application methods, neonicotinoids are used to protect crops and pets from insect attacks globally. 2011). Although the studies in this review represent an important contribution to the literature, particularly given the lack of any general population chronic exposure studies prior to 2014, there remains a paucity of data on neonic exposure and human health. Data collection timeframes overlapped among the studies, but differed widely in number of years included. (2009) also noted the evaluation procedure itself may have affected results during the first week, with a drop off in awareness in weeks 2–3. Neonicotinoids act on the central nervous system, not only of insects but also of mammals. Imidacloprid induces neurobehavioral deficits and increases expression of glial fibrillary acidic protein in the motor cortex and hippocampus in offspring rats following in utero exposure. Effects also depend on the health of a person and/or certain environmental factors. More work is needed in this area, and all available information will be considered in the neonicotinoid re-evaluation. Telephone: (202) 994-1734. Evaluation of the Carcinogenic Potential for, 60109. Study design and goals. A validated biomarker for IMI would enable more accurate exposure assessment (Elfman et al. (2009) used biomonitoring (blood serum) to measure the amount of IMI ingested on presentation as well as to analyze absorption and elimination rates. Sci Total Environ 505 :409-422, doi: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2014.09.090 25461043 . The PECO statement was used to define the research question and develop the search terms and inclusion and exclusion criteria for the systematic review. Confounding. Similarly, only 51% of the cases in Forrester (2014) were ingestions versus 91% (61 of 68) in Mohamed et al. This period was chosen as it overlaps with the sharp increase in prophylactic use of neonics in U.S. agriculture, particularly neonic-coated seeds and soil injections. 2014), greater understanding of metabolite production (Marfo et al. The authors declare they have no actual or potential competing financial interests. 2014); and 35 symptomatic cases (50 controls) (Marfo et al. Environmental fate and exposure; neonicotinoids and fipronil. (2009) reported that concentrations of IMI remained elevated for up to 10–15 hr post-ingestion, suggesting humans have a saturable (zero order) absorption and elimination ability for high doses of IMI. Systemic insecticides (neonicotinoids and fipronil): trends, uses, mode of action and metabolites. or possible effects the parasite may pose on bumblebees (but see Graystock et al., 2013; Fu¨rst et al., 2014). Reported odds ratios were based on exposed compared to unexposed groups. Studies published in English between 2005 and 2015 were searched using PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases. 2014). In its 2012 Total Diet Study, the FDA reported neonics were among the most frequently found pesticide residues in infant and toddler foods (occurrence ranging from 6% to 31%) (FDA 2015). We collected the following data for each study: authors, journal, year of publication, country, study design, study population, exposure assessment, health outcome diagnosis, measures of association, adjustment factors, and other critical comments.

All three poisoning studies reported cardiovascular effects were a rare but possible serious clinical outcome of acute neonic exposure. They are persistent in the environment, infiltrate groundwater, and have cumulative and largely irreversible effects on invertebrates. They are considered to have low toxicity for vertebrates because of relatively low affinity for vertebrate … The development of biomarkers for the most heavily used neonics and their metabolites would greatly assist future neonic-human health investigations. Certain neonic metabolites have been found to be as or more toxic than the parent compound (Chen et al. Acute human self-poisoning with Imidacloprid compound: a neonicotinoid insecticide. Neonicotinoids do an excellent job at targeting pests like aphids and whiteflies, which cause widespread crop damage by sucking sap from plant foliage. 2014) shared a focus on associations between neonics and developmental outcomes. Specific aims included evaluating the risk of bias (internal validity) of relevant studies, determining the extent to which findings could be synthesized across studies to reach level-of-evidence conclusions (NTP 2015) for any associations reported between neonicotinoids and human health, and addressing research implications based on that evidence. The goal of this systematic review was to identify relevant human population studies on the health effects of neonicotinoids. The median amount of neonic ingested ranged from 15 mL (Mohamed et al. The question arises as to their effects on mammals and in particular on humans. Of the 1,142, 77% were identified as IMI alone or in combination with other neonics. The sample size of those with “typical symptoms” associated with DMAP exposure (versus those with “atypical symptoms” n = 16) was also small (n = 19) (Marfo et al. 2009). 2012; Gibbons et al. Cimino AM, Boyles AL, Thayer KA, Perry MJ. Exposure could occur via several pathways (dermal, inhalation, ingestion), but it was unclear why a 1-week time frame was considered long enough for an acute (but nonpoisonous) cumulative exposure to take place. How does this pesticide affect bees and other wildlife? The other prospective study, Elfman et al. Future studies should strive to increase the sample size, taking into account the desired statistical power, effect size, and the background prevalence of the outcome of interest (Perry 2008). Neonicotinoid pesticides are causing significant damage to a wide range of beneficial species and are a key factor in the decline of bees, say scientists. Two poisoning studies reported acute neonic ingestion produced symptoms similar to acute organophosphate or carbamate poisoning (Phua et al. Neonicotinoids (also referred to as “neonics”) are insecticides derived from nicotine. Background: Numerous studies have identified detectable levels of neonicotinoids (neonics) in the environment, adverse effects of neonics in many species, including mammals, and pathways through which human exposure to neonics could occur, yet little is known about the human health effects of neonic exposure. Immune suppression by neonicotinoid insecticides at the root of global wildlife declines. 407 children with ASD recruited from Childhood Autism Risks from Genetics and Environment (CHARGE) Study/206 controls. The four chronic exposure studies (Carmichael et al. A comparison group exposed to lower levels (or no exposure or exposure below detection levels) compared to more highly exposed participant. Mohamed et al. 2015; Goulson et al. 1,142 exposure cases reported to a TX poison control network from 2000 to 2012. By continuing you agree to the use of cookies. Catching Up with Popular Pesticides: More Human Health Studies Are Needed on Neonicotinoids. In addition, the reference lists of relevant records were searched to capture articles that may have been missed in the database searches. 2015), supporting the U.S. EPA’s establishment of MRLs for the leading neonics used in American agriculture: imidacloprid (IMI), clothianidin (CLO), THX, and acetamiprid (ACE). 2014; Simon-Delso et al. The three poisoning studies all reported IMI was the most common neonic used in self-poisonings (n = 884 IMI; n = 99 IMI in combination with other chemicals). (2009) and only two children included among the cases in Phua et al. (2009). They have a … et al. 2008, 2010). Worryingly, effects are also being displayed in birds, bats, aquatic organisms and related ecosystem services. 2014). Significant association between urinary DMAP and increased prevalence of memory loss, finger tremor, and other symptoms of unknown origin (OR 14, 95% CI: 3.5, 57). They initially stimulate the receptor and cause a depolarizing blockade later leading to death as a result of paralysis. If you need assistance accessing journal content, please Neonicotinoid insecticides have become the fastest growing class of insecticides over the past few decades. Neonicotinoids are a new class of insecticides chemically related to nicotine. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) 2014 pesticide monitoring report found neonics in 12 of 19 different fruits and vegetables sampled, with 11 of these containing multiple neonics, an increase compared to the previous USDA PDP report, which reported neonics were detected in 11 of 17 fruits and vegetables, with only two containing multiple neonics (USDA 2014, 2016). (2009) may have been too small to detect IMI health effects, biasing results to the null. 2014). All 10 who developed severe/fatal poisoning ingested only IMI. Neonicotinoids in the Canadian aquatic environment: a literature review on current use products with a focus on fate, exposure, and biological effects. Are seed treatments worth the investment? https://doi.org/10.1016/j.chemosphere.2017.10.149. Our aims here are to review studies on human neonicotinoid exposure levels, health effect, evaluation of potential toxicity and to suggest possible directions for future research. 2014); the third examined maternal use of flea and tick medication containing IMI from 3 months before conception through 3 years of age (Keil et al. For Release: December 15, 2017. 2014). 2011; Simon-Delso et al. 2015). These insecticides are supposed to be more targeted than non-systemic pesticides. Overview of the status and global strategy for neonicotinoids. (2014) assigned a time window for pesticide exposure corresponding to 1-month prior to or 2 months post conception. 2012; Mason et al. All four case–control studies reported an association between chronic (i.e., nonacute) neonic exposure and an adverse human health effect. Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Milken Institute School of Public Health, George Washington University, Washington, DC, USA, Office of Health Assessment and Translation, Division of the National Toxicology Program, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, Durham, North Carolina, USA. Studies that did not meet the PECO criteria were excluded. Mohamed et al. Cases of self-poisoning with ACE (n = 8), THX (n = 6), and CLO (n = 5) were few in comparison (Phua et al. The following search terms were used: “neonicotinoids AND human health”; “imidacloprid OR clothianidin OR thiamethoxam OR acetamiprid AND human health”; “neonicotinoids AND occupational exposure/adverse effects”; “neonicotinoids AND environmental exposure/adverse effects”; “neonicotinoids AND maternal exposure”; “neonicotinoids AND prenatal exposure”; “neonicotinoids AND migrants and transients”; “neonicotinoids AND neurological development”; “neonicotinoids AND fetal development”; “neonicotinoids AND teratogenicity”; “neonicotinoids AND bioaccumulation”; “neonicotinoids AND biomagnification”; “neonicotinoid metabolites AND human health”. Only Marfo et al. (2009) suffered several assessment limitations that may have contributed to its lack of findings for IMI-related health effects. The distribution of age varied significantly among the studies, with children < 19 years comprising 37% of the cases in Forrester (2014) compared to no children < 14 years of age enrolled in Mohamed et al. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first systematic review of the literature on human health effects of neonicotinoids. Elfman et al. Effects also depend on the health of a person and/or certain environmental factors. The neonicotinoids are highly effective insecticides with low toxicity to humans, but this unnecessary overuse is also driving the development of pest resistance against them. Studies indicating null or weak but inconclusive associations between a neonicotinoid pesticide and a human health outcome may not have made it to publication, biasing the literature (Easterbrook et al. (2014) included several classes of pesticides but noted they did not correct results for multiple comparisons, increasing the potential for type 1 (false positive) error. (2009) between 1987 and 2007, and Mohamed et al. 2014) and between urinary DMAP and an increased prevalence of neurologic symptoms and 5 of 6 specific health measures (OR 14, 95% CI: 3.5, 57) (Marfo et al. They are highly effective against difficult-to-control sucking, boring, and root-feeding insects (Goulson 2013). 2009). New scientific evidence has led the European Union to progressively restrict the uses of these substances. Carmichael et al. 2014), and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (Keil et al. Pounds of pesticides used within a 500-m radius of each subject’s geocoded address during the relevant window were calculated. (2014) reported they did not control for covariates that could have caused exposure misclassification, such as chemical half-lives, vapor pressure, wind patterns, and individual metabolic variability. Three of the studies focused on developmental health outcomes, including congenital heart defects (CHDs) (Carmichael et al. Adverse effect of neonicotinoids. strives to ensure that all journal content is accessible to all readers. Three of the four chronic exposure studies reported findings related only to IMI exposure (Carmichael et al. Studies did not assess neonic exposure separately from other pesticide classes. 2014; Yang et al. Studies were not peer-reviewed (e.g., conference abstracts, technical reports, theses and dissertations, working papers from research groups or committees, and white papers). The acute poisoning … The EFSA stated in its release: (2009) to < 70 cases (Phua et al. Regarding outcome assessment, all four studies relied at least in part on interview data, with none reporting validation of questionnaires for internal consistency or factor loading or inter-rater agreement among interviewers. They are persistent in the environment, infiltrate groundwater, and have cumulative and largely irreversible effects on invertebrates. Pesticides have been associated with short- and long-term effects on human health, including elevated cancer risks and disruption of the body’s reproductive, immune, endocrine, and nervous systems, 2 as well as malignant melanoma. 35 symptomatic cases in Gunma prefecture/50 controls. Four examined acute exposure: Three neonic poisoning studies reported two fatalities (n = 1,280 cases) and an occupational exposure study of 19 forestry workers reported no adverse effects. The EFSA stated in its release: Activation and modulation of human α4β2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors by the neonicotinoids clothianidin and imidacloprid. Widespread use and frequent detection of neonicotinoid insecticides in wetlands of Canada’s Prairie Pothole Region. Exposure assignment differed among the studies as well. Weak association between prenatal exposure to IMI and ASD (AOR 1.3, 95% CrI: 0.78, 2.2); OR increased to 2.0 (95% CrI: 1.0, 3.9) when limiting study population to those who self-identified as “frequent users” of flea and tick medicines containing IMI. 2014). They are neurotoxic to humans as well. Effects of imidacloprid on human health and the environment depend on how much imidacloprid is present and the length and frequency of exposure. Of these, 76 were excluded on the basis of title and abstract. Some people might wonder, if it kills insects, is it really safe for the environment to be using. Pesticide Monitoring Program: 2011 Pesticide Report. They act by binding strongly to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in the central nervous system of insects, causing overstimulation of their nerve cells, paralysis and death. due to the complexity of the information being presented. 2012; Li et al. The other four studies analyzed the health effects of chronic (i.e., nonacute) environmental exposure to neonicotinoids (Carmichael et al. They are much more toxic to invertebrates, like insects, than they are to mammals, birds and other higher organisms. Although neonicotinoids are considered low toxicity to mammals and humans in comparison with traditional insecticides, more and more studies show exposure to neonicotinoids pose potential risk to mammals and even humans. (2014) differed from the other two developmental studies in several ways, including its focus on IMI alone as the main pesticide exposure; the exposure pathway (self-application of IMI in flea and tick products versus maternal residence proximity to agricultural pesticide use); and the statistical methods used to analyze data. 2015; Yang et al. In recent years, neonicotinoids and their metabolites have been successfully detected in various human biological samples. One of IMI’s breakdown products, desnitro-imidacloprid, for instance, has a high affinity for mammalian nAChRs, is known to be highly toxic to mice (Chao and Casida 1997), and can be formed either in a mammal’s body during metabolism or in the environment (Koshlukova 2006). 2014; Marfo et al. Large-scale epidemiological studies on human health effects are needed. Studies of the in vitro absorption of IMI [44] and ACE [45] using the human intestinal cell line suggest that these neonicotinoids are also absorbed in vivo by active transporters in the intestines. Note: ACE, acetamiprid; AOR, adjusted odds ratio; ASD, autism spectrum disorder; CI, 95% confidence interval; CLO, clothianidin; CrI, credible interval; IMI, imidiacloprid. 2012; Simon-Delso et al. Neonicotinoid insecticide exposures reported to six poison centers in Texas. Neonics are persistent in the environment: They have been found in soil, dust, wetlands, ground water, nontarget plants and vertebrate prey, and foods common to the American diet, including wild and aqua cultured marine species (Anderson et al. Of the 101 cases of tetralogy of Fallot, only 9 cases were exposed to IMI (Carmichael et al. The latter was of particular concern because the Childhood Autism Risks from Genetics and Environment (CHARGE) interview data were based on maternal recall of household pesticide use from, on average, 4 years in the past. Seed coating with a neonicotinoid insecticide negatively affects wild bees. (2014) did not control for air pollution, which is considered a possible risk factor for ASD.
