Abstract
This study measured the levels of 17 congeners of PCDDs/PCDFs in serum to compare the levels between potentially exposed workers at an industrial waste incinerator and any residents with no known exposures. The 1,2,3,6,7,8- and 1,2,3,7,8,9-HxCDD were detected in serum of workers but in controls. Likewise, 1,2,3,7,8-PeCDF, 1,2,3,6,7,8- and 1,2,3,7,8,9-HxCDF were detected only in serum of workers. The international toxic equivalent (TEQ) levels of PCDDs/PCDFs in sera of workers are much higher than in controls. Among PCDDs, the proportion of total concentration and TEQ level is dominated predominantly by 1,2,3,6,7,8- and 1,2,3,7,8,9-HxCDD. We need extensive studies to estimate human exposure and are continuing this investigation.
