Título Hexachlorobenzene and other organochloride pesticides in human blood
Información bibliográfica 4 Nov. 1972, Vol.59/2, No.19, p.1063-1066. 13 ref.
Resumen The concentration of organochlorine compounds with pesticidal activity was determined in the whole blood from 237 subjects in a study to determine normal background levels of hexachlorobenzene (HCB). 185 of the group had some occupational exposure to these compounds (pesticide sprayers, greenkeepers, pesticide production or packaging workers), and 52 people had no known exposure. None of the subjects showed any apparent signs of intoxication. Nearly all blood specimens examined contained DDT, HCB and other commonly found pesticides in amounts comparable to the levels reported in studies in other countries. However, the majority of specimens contained the fungicide hexachlorobenzene, the presence of which in blood had not been reported previously.
