  1. 1. Organochlorines and bone : Effects of organochlorines on bone tissue morphology, composition and strength

    Author : Monica Lind; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; Developmental biology; Utvecklingsbiologi; Ecotoxicology; Ekotoxikologi;

    Abstract : From results presented during the last decade, it is obvious that the skeleton is a targetorgan for a number of persistent organochlorines. So far, however, little attention hasbeen paid to this subject. READ MORE

  2. 2. Application of two dimensional compound specific carbon-chlorine isotope analyses for degradation monitoring and assessment of organic pollutants in contaminated soil and groundwater

    Author : Charline Wiegert; Örjan Gustafsson; Thomas Hofstetter; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; organochlorines; chlorinated ethenes; PCE; TCE; hexachlorocyclohexanes; soil contamination; groundwater contamination; remediation; natural attenuation; biodegradation; carbon isotopes; chlorine isotopes; CSIA; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Nearly 250,000 sites with past and present potentially polluting activities need urgent remediation within Europe. Major pollutants include organochlorines (OCls), e.g. chlorinated ethenes (CEs) and hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCHs), mainly used as industrial solvents and pesticides, respectively. READ MORE

  3. 3. Epidemiological aspects on hairy cell leukaemia

    Author : Marie Nordström; Håkan Olssen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Hairy cell leukaemia; case-control study; occupational exposures; Epstein-Barr virus; medical histmy; organochlorines; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Non Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) has an increasing incidence in many Western countries. In Sweden, about 1800 new cases were reported to the Cancer Registry in 1996 including cases of chronic lymphatic leukaemia (CLL). Hairy cell leukaemia (HCL) is a rare subgroup of malignant lymphoma. About 25 new cases are diagnosed among males in Sweden yearly. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developmental neurotoxicity of persistent and non-persistent pollutants : Behavioral and neurochemical assessments of a perfluorinated compound, pesticides and interaction effects

    Author : Iwa Lee; Henrik Viberg; Per Eriksson; William Mundy; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis was to investigate developmental neurotoxic effects of different persistent and non-persistent environmental pollutants, alone or in binary mixtures, when exposure occurs during a critical period of brain development, in mice. The compounds investigated included a perfluorinated compound, perfluorohexane sulphonate (PFHxS), and four different pesticides, endosulfan, cypermethrin, chlorpyrifos and carbaryl. READ MORE
