Rat liver changes after subchronic exposition to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB)of low chlorine content


Liver changes were studied after subchronic feeding a diet containing 2000 ppm PCB [chlorine content 42% corresponding to trichlorobiphenyls (triCB)]. The products differed in their content of highly chlorinated biphenyls (≥Cl5-biphenyl; 5%=triCB-5, 2%=triCB-2 and 0.4%=triCB-0.4). The most striking difference was observed in respect to their porphyrinogenic… (More)
