*  Endocrine Disruptors: biomarkers
Since PCBs are lipophilic, they are generally stored in adipose tissue. However, they are also present in serum, blood plasma, and human milk. Both serum and plasma PCB levels can be significantly affected by serum lipid content (total cholesterol, free cholesterol, triglycerides, and phospholipids) because of partitioning between adipose tissue and serum lipids. Therefore, serum or plasma lipid PCB levels are a better biomarker for body burden than serum or plasma PCB levels without lipid content corrections. Correction factors can be obtained by measuring PCB serum levels while fasting and while not fasting. Non-fasting levels tend to be higher ...
