Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-DNA adducts in spontaneously aborted fetal tissue.

Abstract

Fetal tissue and placentas from 15 human spontaneous abortions were evaluated for DNA adducts of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), using a competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) with fluorescent end-point detection. PAH-derived adducts were found in 43% of placentas, 27% of fetal liver samples and 42% of fetal lung specimens, thus… (More)
