This experiment was aimed at determining the bioavailability of three polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in goats: phenanthrene, pyrene, and benzo[a]pyrene. A Latin square design procedure was carried out involving three alpine lactating goats and three PAH-contaminated matrices (soil, hay, and oil as a control). Milk and urine samples were collected to assess PAH and hydroxy-PAH excretion kinetics and to compare the carry-over rates for the different matrices. PAHs were found to be… CONTINUE READING
