Urinary 2,5-dichlorophenol as biological index for p-dichlorobenzene exposure in the general population.

The relationship between exposure to p-dichlorobenzene (p-DCB) and urinary excretion of 2,5-dichlorophenol (2,5-DCP), the major metabolite of p-DCB, was examined to evaluate the usefulness of the metabolite as a biological index for low-level exposure of p-DCB in the general population. Personal exposure concentrations of p-DCB and concentrations of 2,5-DCP… CONTINUE READING
