We estimated the association of testosterone with serum wet-weight concentrations of total PCBs, PCBs 52, 74, 99, 105, 118, 138, 153, 170, 180, 201, 203, and 206, NpPEC, mono-ortho-substituted congeners, di-ortho-substituted congeners, tri-and tetra-ortho-substituted congeners, dioxin TEQs, DDE, HCB, and mirex, while adjusting for age, BMI, and total lipids.
Of the 12 single congeners and five congener groups studied, we found no significant relationship with serum testosterone levels for PCBs 52, 105, 118, 138, 170, 180, 201, and 203 or the NpPEC group (data not shown).
We found significant relationships between serum testosterone concentrations in men with four non-dioxin-like PCB congeners and for all PCB groups except NpPEC. PCBs 74 and 99, mono- and di-ortho, respectively, are the congeners most closely associated with levels of fish consumption in this population (Fitzgerald et al.
