The present study investigates the ability of several hexachlorobenzene (HCB) metabolites to induce porphyrin accumulation in chick embryo liver cells in ovo, in order to further clarify the role of metabolites in the mechanism of HCB-induced porphyria. HCB per se had no effect on liver porphyrin content, but pretreatment assays with phenobarbital suggested… CONTINUE READING
