Abstract. In spring 1998, two women were diagnosed with severe 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) intoxication. Over the following 3 years, TCDD levels were monitored under various attempts to enhance its elimination, and the half-lives were evaluated. Olestra, a non-digestible, non-absorbable dietary fat substitute, was continuously administered to the patients either as pure substance or in potato-chips. Additionally, in the more severely contaminated patient, we studied whether low… Expand
2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) poisoning in Victor Yushchenko: identification and measurement of TCDD metabolites
TLDR
This case of poisoning with TCDD suggests that the design of methods for routine assessment ofTCDD metabolites in human beings should be a main aim of T CDD research in the metabolomic era. Expand
Effect of 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) on Hormones of Energy Balance in a TCDD-Sensitive and a TCDD-Resistant Rat Strain
TLDR
A reverse set of changes in the AHR protein and mRNA response to TCDD and feed restriction is demonstrated, suggesting that AHR might function also as a physiological regulator, possibly involved in the maintenance of energy balance. Expand
Concentration and age-dependent elimination kinetics of polychlorinated dibenzofurans in Yucheng and Yusho patients
TLDR
The current study provides limited additional evidence that PCDFs, like TCDD, are more rapidly eliminated in younger individuals. Expand
Age- and Concentration-Dependent Elimination Half-Life of 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in Seveso Children
TLDR
Children and adolescents have shorter TCDD half-lives and a slower rate of increase in half-life than adults, and this effect is augmented at higher body burdens. Expand
Application of pharmacokinetic modelling for 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin exposure assessment£
TLDR
The recoded ADM for TCDD performed best for low background exposures over time compared with a high acute poisoning case that could due to the large dose and associated liver toxicity, Hence, this model may be useful for interpreting human biomonitoring data as a part of an overall DLC risk assessment. Expand
Concentration-dependent TCDD elimination kinetics in humans: toxicokinetic modeling for moderately to highly exposed adults from Seveso, Italy, and Vienna, Austria, and impact on dose estimates for the NIOSH cohort
TLDR
Application of the model to serum sampling data from the cohort of US herbicide-manufacturing workers assembled by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) indicates that previous estimates of peak serum lipid TCDD concentrations in dioxin-exposed manufacturing workers may have underestimated the maximum concentrations in these workers and other occupational cohorts by several-fold to an order of magnitude or more. Expand
Reduction of the body burden of PCBs and DDE by dietary intervention in a randomized trial.
TLDR
This pilot study has demonstrated that olestra can safely reduce body burdens of PCBs and supports a larger intervention trial that may also determine whether reduction in PCBs will reduce the risk of hypertension and diabetes. Expand
Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor and Dioxin-Related Health Hazards—Lessons from Yusho
TLDR
In this review article, the pathogenic implication of AHR in dioxin-induced health hazards is discussed and the potential therapeutic use of herbal drugs targeting AHR and ROS in patients with Yusho is mentioned. Expand
Apparent Half-Lives of Dioxins, Furans, and Polychlorinated Biphenyls as a Function of Age, Body Fat, Smoking Status, and Breast-Feeding
TLDR
The half-life of dioxin, furan, and polychlorinated biphenyl congeners named in the World Health Organization toxic equivalency factor scheme can be predicted using a linear relationship with age adjusted for body fat, smoking, and breast-feeding. Expand
Isomer pattern and elimination of dioxins in workers exposed at a municipal waste incineration plant
TLDR
The serum toxic equivalency (TEQ) concentrations of PCDF and PCDD congeners in the employees were higher than those in the general population survey by the Ministry of the Environment, Japan, whereas the serum concentrations of coplanar PCBs were similar to those inThe general population. Expand

Severe 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) intoxication: clinical and laboratory effects.
TLDR
A 2-year follow-up is presented including clinical, biochemical, hematologic, endocrine, and immunologic parameters monitored in two women, 30 and 27 years of age, who suffered from chloracne due to TCDD intoxication of unknown origin. Expand
Pharmacokinetics and biological activity of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin
Concentrations of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) in rat liver and adipose tissue, and hepatic ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase (EROD) activity were studied subsequent to a single subcutaneousExpand
Assessment of past occupational exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin using blood lipid analyses
TLDR
Estimating cumulative TCDD concentrations back-calculated to the time of exposure for all 254 members of the accident cohort correlated well with chloracne severity and should be helpful in assessing the relationships between various health outcomes. Expand
Serum dioxin levels in Seveso, Italy, population in 1976.
TLDR
Assessing human exposure in this potentially exposed population by measuring 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in small volumes of serum specimens remaining from the medical examinations found that the median serum dioxin levels were highest among people who lived closest to the explosion and were progressively lower among groups living farther away, and the serum half-life of dioxIn was 7-8 years, which agrees with other findings. Expand
Olestra increases faecal excretion of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin
TLDR
Olestra, a non-digestible, lipophilic dietary fat substitute accelerated the patients' intestinal excretion of TCDD by eight to ten fold, sufficient to reduce the normally observed elimination half life of T CDD from about 7 years to 1-2 years. Expand
Elimination of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans in occupationally exposed persons.
TLDR
The higher chlorinated PCDD/F like TCDD appear to be highly persistent in humans with half-lives ranging between 4 and 12 yr, and smokers in general had a faster decay than non- and ex-smokers. Expand
Morbidity follow up study of BASF employees exposed to 2,3,7, 8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) after a 1953 chemical reactor incident.
TLDR
Examination of the long term morbidity experience of men exposed to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin concluded that heightened awareness and personal health concerns led to greater utilisation of medical services in the exposed group, and the findings based on TCDD concentration should be less subject to this potential bias.

Role of CYP1A2 in hepatic sequestration of dioxin: studies using CYP1A2 knock-out mice.
TLDR
There was no hepatic sequestering of TCDD and 4-PeCDF in the transgenic knock-out mice, as demonstrated by the liver-to-adipose tissue (L/F) concentration ratios. Expand
The toxicokinetics and metabolism of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and their relevance for toxicity.
TLDR
Human risk assessment for PCDDs and PCDFs needs to consider species-, congener-, and dose-specific toxicokinetic data, as exposure to complex mixtures, including PCBs, has the potential to alter the toxicokinetics of individual compounds. Expand
Elimination of polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from human blood in the Yusho and Yu-Cheng rice oil poisonings
TLDR
Results show that clearance of the toxic PCDFs and PCBs in humans is non-linear with faster elimination at higher exposure followed by slower decreases as background levels are approached. Expand
