Concentrations of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans in human placental and fetal tissues from the U.S. and in placentas from Yu-Cheng exposed mothers.

Abstract

We report the concentrations of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) found in human placentas and fetal tissue from the U.S. and in placentas from Yu-Cheng mothers. In placental material from sources in the U.S. we found concentrations, expressed as dioxin toxic equivalence (TEQ) values and on a lipid basis… (More)
