The serum immunoglobulin (IgG, IgM and IgA) concentrations of 52 chlorinated-exposed workers were examined and compared with those of non-exposed, age- and sex-matched individuals. At the time of testing, the exposed population had mean hexachlorobenzene (HCB) blood levels of 3.84 micrograms/dl with a range of 0.1 to 16 micrograms/dl. Increased IgG and IgM levels were found in the HCB-exposed workers (P < 0.05 and P < 0.01, respectively). Hepatic function was evaluated by serum aspartate (AST… CONTINUE READING
