Bisphenol A (BPA) is a monomer that is widely used in the manufacturing of polycarbonate plastics (including storage plastics and baby bottles) and is considered to be one of the most widely used synthetic compounds in the manufacturing industry. Exposure to BPA mainly occurs after oral ingestion and results from leaks into food and water from plastic containers. According to epidemiological data, exposure is widespread and estimated to occur in 90% of individuals. BPA exhibits pleiotropic and estrogen-like effects; thus, it is considered an endocrine-disrupting chemical. A growing body of evidence highlights the role of BPA in modulating immune responses and signaling pathways, which results in a proinflammatory response by enhancing the differential polarization of immune cells and cytokine production profile to one that is consistent with proinflammation. Indeed, epidemiological studies have uncovered associations between several autoimmune diseases and BPA exposure. Data from animal models provided consistent evidence, which highlighted the role of BPA in the pathogenesis, exacerbation, and perpetuation of various autoimmune phenomena including neuroinflammation in the context of multiple sclerosis, colitis in inflammatory bowel disease, nephritis in systemic lupus erythematosus, and insulitis in type 1 diabetes mellitus. Owing to the widespread use of BPA and its effects on immune system dysregulation, a call for careful assessment of patients’ risks and public health measures are needed to limit exposure and subsequent deleterious effects. The purpose of this study is to explore the autoimmune triggering mechanisms and present the current literature supporting the role of BPA in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases.

Keywords: Bisphenol A, autoimmunity, proinflammation, Multiple sclerosis, Systemic lupus erythematosus, plastics.
