Determination of organochlorine pesticides residues in human adipose tissue, data from Cukurova, Turkey



Determination of organochlorine pesticides residues in human adipose tissue, data from Cukurova, Turkey



Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 85(1): 97-102



We determined and compared the levels of BHC and DDT isomers and metabolites and HCB in the adipose tissue of 82 cases of autopsies performed at the Morgue Department of Adana Branch of the Council of Forensic Medicine. The relationships between the age, gender, and body mass indexes of cases, and the accumulation of OCs residues were also investigated. Detectable concentrations of p,p'-DDE were found in 100% of adipose tissue samples. Concentrations of OCs in female adipose tissues were significantly higher than male adipose tissues (p < 0.05). The presented work is highly significant, being the first study pointing out the chronic exposure to organochlorine pesticides in Cukurova region.
