PCB and dioxin levels in plasma and human milk of 418 Dutch women and their infants. Predictive value of PCB congener levels in maternal plasma for fetal and infant's exposure to PCBs and dioxins.
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) as well as dioxins (polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs)) are potentially hazardous compounds in the environment for human beings.
In order to investigate PCB and dioxin exposure of Dutch women and their neonates, levels were examined in 418 mother-infant pairs.
Four non-planar PCB congener levels (PCB 118,138,153 and 180) were measured in maternal plasma and in umbilical cord plasma.
The 209 mothers who breast-fed their infants collected human milk samples for the analysis of seventeen 2,3,7,8-substituted PCDD and PCDF congener levels, three planar PCB and twenty-three non-planar PCB congener levels.
