Three cases of yellow atrophy of the liver have occurred in each of 3 widely separated plants and under different management within a year or two. In each instance where the illness appeared, the men were exposed to a chlorinated naphthalene heated above the melting point and giving off fumes. Yellow atrophy of the liver is a rare disease and there have been no cases reported where chlorinated naphthalene was the proven etiological agent. The following experiments were conducted to determine if… Expand
Toxicity of Chlorinated Hydrocarbons and Related Compounds
Various chlorinated technical compounds, namely, 2,4,5-trichlorophenol, 2,4,5-trichlorophen-oxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T), and European chlorinated biphenyls (Phenoclor DP6 and Clophen A60), have beenExpand
CHRONIC TOXICITY OF HALOGENATED BIPHENYLS AND RELATED COMPOUNDS IN ANIMALS AND HEALTH EFFECTS IN HUMANS
ABSTRACT Commercial chlorinated and brominated biphenyls are mixtures of many isomers. They may be contaminated by halogenated naphthalenes and dibenzofurans. Diseases caused by these compoundsExpand
PUBLIC HEALTH ASPECTS OF THE NEW INSECTICIDES
IN 1945, against the advice of investigators who had studied the pharmacology of the compound (70) and found it dangerous for all forms of life, DDT (chlorophenothane,Expand
Leber und Umweltgifte
TLDR
The liver, as the central site for the biotransformation of xenobiotics, deserves special attention when new chemicals which are to be introduced into the environment are being tested for their potential toxicity, especially since many hepatotoxic agents have been shown to undergo bioactivation in the liver.

Morphological and biochemical changes in the liver of rats fed polychlorinated biphenyls
TLDR
Rats fed diets containing 0.1 percent of three polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) for six weeks show a progressive enlargement of the liver, attributed to proliferation of the smooth endoplasmic reticulum, development of large membranous concentric arrays, and increase in lipid droplets within the cytoplasm of the affected liver cells.

Chlorocarbons and Chlorohydrocarbons, Toxic Aromatics
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and naphthalenes (PCNs) are halogenated aromatic industrial compounds produced and marketed for a wide variety of applications. PCBs were used as heat-transferExpand
Use and health effects of Aroclor 1242, a polychlorinated biphenyl, in an electrical industry.
TLDR
Although hepatic function tests were normal, the mean blood Aroclor level in the exposed group (approximately 400 ppb) was significantly higher than in the control group, and a tentative value of 200 ppb is suggested for AroClor 1242 as an acceptable level for occupationally exposed workers. Expand
Polychlorinated naphthalenes (PCNs) in seafood: Estimation of dietary intake in Korean population.
TLDR
This is the first report to exhibit the presence of PCNs in seafood samples collected from local markets in Korea and their intake by general population and their TEQ value represented only a small fraction of the total TEQ intake from consumption of seafood in Korean population. Expand

Persistent pollutants: a brief history of the discovery of the widespread toxicity of chlorinated hydrocarbons.
TLDR
Carson's work was clearly critical in broadening the history to include the environmental impact and set the stage for the path breaking work decades later by Theo Colburn and others on endocrine disruptions associated with other synthetic chemicals. Expand
