Bioaccumulated chlorinated hydrocarbons & red/white blood cell parameters

  [ 36 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • June 7, 1996


The potential relationships between chlorinated hydrocarbon
contamination in human serum and red/white blood cell profiles
were investigated by multivariate techniques to assess the
cellular response patterns to high and low organochlorine
levels in the serum. Twenty-three healthy control subjects
and fourteen patients with unexplained and persistent fatigue
were divided on the basis of (a) high or low total
organochlorine content, (b) high or low DDE
(1,1-dichloro-2,2-bis(p-chlorophenyl) ethene) content, and
(c) high or low HCB (hexachlorobenzene) content. Discriminant
function analysis revealed that the groups with high
organochlorine content had significantly different red/white
blood cell profiles compared with the low organochlorine
groups ((a) P < 0.017, (b) P < 0.015, and (c) P < 0.0002). As
a variable, the percentage of neutrophils was the most
important discriminant parameter for differentiating between
the high and low total organochlorine groups. Thirteen of the
fourteen fatigued patients were characterized as "high total
organocholorine content" (P < 0.04). The red cell distribution
width was elevated in the high DDE group (P < 0.04) and was
the most important discriminant parameter for differentiating
between the high and low DDE groups. The percentage of
eosinophils and the hemoglobin content were both reduced in
the high HCB group (P < 0.009,P < 0.003, respectively) and
the percentage of eosinophils was the most important
discriminant parameter for differentiating between the high
and low HCB groups. Those patients with unexplained and
persistent fatigue had significantly higher levels of DDE
compared with the controls and had different specific blood
cell responses to organochlorines compared with control
subjects.
