Excerpt
Excerpt: The extensive production and use of organohalogen substances (OHS), including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), 2,2-bis(4- chlorophenyl)-1,1,1-trichloroethane (4,4- DDT), and pentachlorophenol (PCP), have resulted in their ubiquitous distribution in the environment. In particular, closed aquatic ecosystems, such as the Baltic Sea, have become heavily polluted by OHS (1). 2,2- Bis(4-chlorophenyl)-1,1-dichloroethene (4,4-DDE) and PCBs have been and are still the major environmental contaminants in this geographic area. Correlated toxic effects have been observed among whitetailed sea eagles (2,3) and in seals living in the Baltic Sea area (4,5). Metabolites of OHS, and in particular of PCB and DDT, may play a central role in producing such toxic effects. PCB methyl sulfones (MeSO2-PCBs) and polychlorobiphenylols (OH-PCBs) are major metabolites of PCB and are found in humans and wildlife at comparatively high concentrations (6). Other pollutants of concern in the case of the Baltic Sea are the polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and hexachlorobenzene (HCB) (7).
