The magnitude of prenatal exposure to these contaminants and to selective nutrients in Inuit mothers and their newborns who were recruited on the Hudson Bay coast is reported and the relatively low correlations observed between organochlorine and methylmercury concentrations may make it easier to identify the specific developmental deficits attributable to each toxicant.
Acute Infections and Environmental Exposure to Organochlorines in Inuit Infants from Nunavik
Results show a possible association between prenatal exposure to OCs and acute infections early in life in this Inuit population.
Effects of in utero exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls and related contaminants on cognitive functioning in young children.
Effects of exposure to PCBs and related compounds on growth and activity in children.
Intellectual impairment in children exposed to polychlorinated biphenyls in utero.
Prenatal exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls was associated with lower full-scale and verbal IQ scores and the strongest effects related to memory and attention, suggesting that the developing fetal brain is particularly sensitive to these compounds.

The relation between prenatal exposure and visual recognition was not mediated by the neonatal deficits, suggesting that intrauterine PCB exposure may have a delayed effect on central nervous system (CNS) functioning.

The utility of brief questionnaires that assess alcohol intake indirectly by asking women about their tolerance to alcohol's effects, psychological consequences of drinking, and significant others' concern about their drinking is confirmed and preliminary data indicating that TWEAK may outperform T-ACE is provided.
Comparison of polychlorinated biphenyl levels across studies of human neurodevelopment.
The results will facilitate a direct comparison of the findings on PCBs and neurodevelopment when they are published for all 10 studies, using a combination of data from original investigators, laboratory reanalyses, calculations based on published data, and expert opinion.
