BACKGROUND An important question is whether human serum levels of persistent organic pollutants has continued to decrease during the last decades. The aim of this study was to assess intra-individual variations over time of serum levels of 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (CB-153), 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophenyl)-ethene (p,p'-DDE) and hexachlorobenzene (HCB), considering the impact of a number of possible determinants. METHODS Blood samples were drawn for the same 39 subjects in 1991… Expand
Rapid decline of persistent organochlorine pollutants in serum among young Swedish males.
TLDR
Serum concentrations of 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (CB-153) and 1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(4-chlorophenyl)-ethylene (p,p'-DDE), two biomarkers of exposure to POPs, were available for 274 and 223 men, respectively, in 2000 and for 200 men in 2004. Expand
Time Trends in Serum Organochlorine Pesticides and Polychlorinated Biphenyls in the General Population of Biscay, Spain
AbstractDespite the measures adopted, levels of organochlorine compounds (OCs) are still being detected in the human body. This study aimed to explore factors related to changes in the concentrationsExpand
Time trends of persistent organic pollutants in Sweden during 1993-2007 and relation to age, gender, body mass index, breast-feeding and parity.
TLDR
All the studied POPs decreased during the time period, probably due to restrictions of their use, and certain factors that may influence the concentrations. Expand
Exposure and risk assessment of the Czech population to chlorinated pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls using archived serum samples from the period 1970 to 1990.
TLDR
The body burden of the Czech general population relative to persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in the period 1970 through 1990 significantly exceeded currently existing health based limit values and the past exposure might adversely affect the health status of the Prague population. Expand
Paradoxical increases in serum levels of highly chlorinated PCBs in aged women in clear contrast to robust decreases in dietary intakes from 1980 to 2003 in Japan
TLDR
Results suggest a decreased rate of elimination of hepta congeners with aging in females, rather than a birth-generation phenomenon. Expand
Polychlorinated biphenyls in Spanish adults: determinants of serum concentrations.
TLDR
The inverse association with BMI suggests that in the mid-1990s there was still ongoing or recent exposure to PCBs in Spain, and fish intake was the dietary factor showing the greatest association with serum PCBs. Expand
Distribution of blood concentrations of persistent organic pollutants in a representative sample of the population of Barcelona in 2006, and comparison with levels in 2002.
TLDR
Although human POP contamination remains common in the city of Barcelona, concentrations decreased significantly in 4years, and the approach suggests innovative ways to conceive, analyze and present results for other monitoring programs. Expand
Relationships of Thyroid Hormones with Polychlorinated Biphenyls, Dioxins, Furans, and DDE in Adults
TLDR
The data show a dose-dependent decrease in total T4 with exposure to TEQs at levels similar to those found in the general U.S. population, suggesting that older adults, who have a high risk of thyroid disease, may be more at risk for disruption of thyroid hormone homeostasis by dioxin-like organochlorines than younger adults.

Persistent Organic Pollutants in Norwegian Men from 1979 to 2007: Intraindividual Changes, Age–Period–Cohort Effects, and Model Predictions
TLDR
The results suggest substantial intraindividual declines in serum concentrations of legacy POPs from 1979 to 2007 in men from Northern Norway are consistent with reduced environmental exposure during these 30 years and highlight the relation between historic emissions and POP concentrations measured in humans. Expand
The impacts of emission trends of POPs on human concentration dynamics: Lessons learned from a longitudinal study in Norway (1979-2007).
TLDR
The time trends in serum concentrations of POPs resembled the trends in available data on their emissions, production or use, suggesting that interpretations of human biomonitoring data on persistent compounds must consider historic emissions, which likely vary spatially across the globe. Expand

Serum concentrations of organochlorines in men: a search for markers of exposure.
TLDR
No useful marker substances were found among DDT compounds and other chlorinated pesticides and metabolites, except for trans-nonachlor which predicted the concentration of the metabolite oxychlordane fairly well. Expand
Exposure to CB-153 and p,p'-DDE and male reproductive function.
TLDR
The association between CB-153 and sperm motility, although not formally significant, is of interest considering the possible endocrine-disrupting effects of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Expand

TLDR
The concentration levels of all substances were positively correlated with maternal age and negatively associated to parity, to the total period of breast-feeding and to a weight increase of mothers before and after delivery. Expand
Monitoring of Polychlorinated Biphenyls in Human Blood Plasma: Methodological Developments and Influence of Age, Lactation, and Fish Consumption
TLDR
The total, lipid-adjusted concentrations of PCBs in plasma were influenced by age, total lactation time and consumption of fatty fish from the Baltic Sea, and enzymatic determinations are recommended for further use. Expand

TLDR
Calculating the levels by toxic equivalency factors relative to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) it was found that PCBs contributed the major part of the toxic equivalents in milk. Expand
Temporal trends of organochlorine concentrations in umbilical cord blood of newborns from the lower north shore of the St. Lawrence river (Québec, Canada).
TLDR
Prenatal exposure to persistent OCs has declined significantly between 1993 and 2000 in this population of newborns in a remote Canadian coastal population. Expand
Changes in serum PBB and PCB levels over time among women of varying ages at exposure.
TLDR
Early age at exposure appears to be an important predictor of changes in serum PBB levels over time, and higher initial serum level was a predictor of decline for both PBB and PCB. Expand
Certain organochlorine and organobromine contaminants in Swedish human milk in perspective of past 20-30 years.
TLDR
The accumulation and ongoing increase in the levels of PBDEs calls for immediate measures to stop the environmental pollution and human exposure toPBDEs. Expand
Influence of the consumption of fatty Baltic Sea fish on plasma levels of halogenated environmental contaminants in Latvian and Swedish men.
TLDR
Fish consumption had the largest relative effect on plasma concentrations of this contaminant and the Spearman's rank correlation coefficient obtained by comparing the level of the metabolite 4-hydroxy-2,3,3',4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl (4-OH-CB107) to the combined levels of its parent compounds was higher than the median correlation coefficient obtaining upon comparing thelevel of this metabolite to all other possible combinations of two PCB levels. Expand
Serum levels of 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl (CB-153) in relation to markers of reproductive function in young males from the general Swedish population.
TLDR
Some tentative support is given for weak negative effects of CB-153 exposure on sperm motility and free testosterone levels in young men, but further semen studies on more highly exposed groups may give more firm conclusions on the hazard for male reproductive function from dietary POC exposure.
