Comparison of dibenzodioxin levels in blood and milk in agricultural workers and others following pentachlorophenol exposure in China.
International symposium on chlorinated dioxins and related compounds. Vienna ATR, 1993/09/20.
Substantial amounts of sodium pentachlorophenol (Na-PCP) salts have been sprxyed in certain areas in central China since the 1960s for control of snail-borne schisosomiasis.
A sample of Na-PCP used in the area of concern was analyzed and showed 2,3,7,8-substituted dibenzodioxin (pCDD) and dibenzofuran (pCDF) congeners as well as some non-2,3,7,8-substituted congeners.
Dibenzodioxin analysis of two pooled blood samples from 100 persons living in sprayed areas and a pooled sample from 26 individuals who had direct contact with the Na-PCP showed elevations of PCDD/F congeners found in the Na-PCP.
