Polychlorinated hydrocarbons, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), are ubiquitous environmental contaminants that bioconcentrate in the food chain. Numerous studies have demonstrated mink (Mustela vison) to be one of the most sensitive species to this group of compounds. In recent studies, a lesion characterized by osteoinvasion of epithelial cells into the mandible and maxilla of young mink fed diets… CONTINUE READING
