Early development of Yu-Cheng children born seven to twelve years after the Taiwan PCB outbreak.
International symposium on chlorinated dioxins and related compounds. Vienna ATR, 1993/09/20.
In Taiwanese children born seven to twelve years after their mothers'or fathers'intoxication of heat-degraded polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) (Yu-Cheng mothers or fathers), we measured the development and behavioral problems in 1991-2.
The development was assessed with the Chinese Child Developmental Inventory (CCDI), and the behavioral problems with Rutter's Child Behavior Scale A. Children of Yu-Cheng mothers had delayed development on several subscales of CCDI and on the combined general development score.
Girls were more affected than boys in their development.
Children of Yu-Cheng fathers did not score differently from unexposed controls on this measurement.
