Host defense systems in cattle exposed to polybrominated biphenyl.


In vivo and in vitro immunologic studies were undertaken in 114 Holstein cattle, 60 of which had detectable polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) in adipose tissue. The tissue PBB concentrations were between 0.02 and at least 1,000 mg/kg. An immunologic test profile was used to evaluate the influence of PBB on bovine immune competence. The profile included serum… (More)
