In earlier studies non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) has been associated with exposure to phenoxyacetic acids or chlorophenols, but also impurities such as polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs) are of concern since these compounds as well as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are immunotoxic and promoters in carcinogenesis. The aim of(More)
The first worldwide interlaboratory study on the analyses of 13 perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) in three environmental and two human samples indicates a varying degree of accuracy in relation to the matrix or analyte determined. The ability of 38 participating laboratories from 13 countries to determine the analytes in the various matrices was evaluated by(More)
Ten human milk samples, collected from two towns, Uppsala and Sundsvall, in Sweden in 1994 were analysed for selected chlorinated pesticides (HCB, alpha- and gamma-HCH, DDT, DDD and DDE) and PCB congeners (PCBs 28, 77, 101, 105, 118, 126, 138, 153, 156, 158, 167, 169 and 180), PCDDs and PCDFs. The levels found in this study, including the toxic equivalent(More)
Chlordane is a pesticide which is lipophilic, bioaccumulates, and may cause immunological impairment in exposed subjects. The aim of this study was to determine the concentrations of chlordane and its metabolites in cases with NHL and surgical controls without a malignant disease. Adipose tissue was obtained from the abdominal wall and analysis was(More)

We have recently reported increased concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls and chlordane compounds in adipose tissue from patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) compared with surgical controls. As a feasibility project we have now studied the occurrence of polybrominated diphenyls ethers (PBDE) in the same study population. Four samples of adipose(More)
