Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fires, explosions and other accidents in polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-filled equipment can result in possible exposure of firemen, cleaning personnel and regular workers. Inhalation, dermal exposure and ingestion are the possible routes of exposure. An indirect assessment of the exposure can be made by analyses of wipes, air and water samples and clothes. A direct assessment of exposure can be made by analyses of blood samples, adipose and other tissue samples, feces and bile.
