Abstract

A number of PCDDs and PCDFs have been identified in human samples. The analytical technique used allows the identification and quantification of individual isomers. The detection levels were in the pg/g region (ppt). The samples analyzed include blood plasma from occupationally exposed workers and also various samples from the Yusho episodes in Japan in 1968 and in Taiwan in 1979.
