Abstract

Abstract Single-dose gavage studies of Times Beach, MO and Newark, NJ dioxin contaminated soils were done to determine relative bioavailability in guinea pigs. GC/MS analysis of the animals' livers showed that dioxins in Times Beach soil were more readily absorbed than dioxins in Newark soil. The liver results also revealed that bioavailability decreased for higher chlorinated dioxins. After 60 days the relative clearance of each congener was similar except for octachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin which was strongly retained by the liver.
