Hexabromocyclododecane concentrations in Canadian human fetal liver and placental tissues.

Abstract

Detectable concentrations of the flame retardant hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) have been reported in human tissues worldwide, but investigations to determine fetal exposure to this brominated flame retardant are lacking. This study was undertaken to determine the concentrations of α-, β- and γ-HBCD in human tissues (fetal liver and placenta) from Canada… (More)
