Exposure to and health effects of volatile PCBs
TLDR
A husband and wife, occupationally required to ‘smell’ PCB-containing oils, both developed thyroid cancer, malignant melanoma/severely melanocytic dysplastic nevus and the husband developed and died of lung cancer.
Analysis of PCB congeners related to cognitive functioning in adolescents.
PCBs and cognitive functioning of Mohawk adolescents.
TLDR
There was a significant negative relationship between PCB levels and two separate measures of long term memory and there was also a negative relationship with a measure of comprehension and knowledge.

TLDR
Opportunity for discussion among investigators, statisticians, and risk assessors potentially would result in human developmental toxicity studies being maximally useful for public health decisions.
Cognitive development in preschool children prenatally exposed to PCBs and MeHg.
TLDR
Results reported here suggest that functional recovery may occur in subjects with higher levels of prenatal PCB exposure, and the interaction between PCB and MeHg cannot be considered conclusive until it has been replicated in subsequent investigations.
Effects of PCB exposure on neuropsychological function in children.
TLDR
It is revealed that the PCB residues in environmental media and human tissues may not closely resemble any of the commercial PCB mixtures, depending on source of exposure, bioaccumulation through the food chain, and weathering of PCBs in the environment.
Organochlorines, lead, and mercury in Akwesasne Mohawk youth.
TLDR
Although differences in analytic methods and participant ages limit comparability, toxicant levels from the Mohawk youth are lower than those associated with severe food contamination (Yusho and Yu-cheng) but similar to other chronically exposed groups.
INTELLECTUAL IMPAIRMENT IN CHILDREN EXPOSED TO POLYCHLORINATED BIPHENYLS IN UTERO
A BSTRACT Background In utero exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls, a ubiquitous environmental contaminant, has been linked to adverse effects on neurologic and intellectual function in infants and
Prenatal exposure to PCBs and infant performance on the fagan test of infant intelligence.
TLDR
Analysis of the results revealed a dose-dependent relationship between total umbilical cord-blood PCB levels and poorer FTII performance at both ages and analyses of FTII scores with cord- Blood DDE and maternal hair methylmercury revealed no significant associations betweenFTII performance and either of these toxicants.
