CONCLUSIONS: Findings support an association of higher peripubertal serum dioxin TEQs and concentrations with later male pubertal onset reflected in delayed testicular maturation.
Previous studies have demonstrated that, whereas the CALUX assay-determined and the GC/MS-determined TEQs are highly correlated when only the PCDD/PCDF fraction of serum is analyzed, the correlation dissipates when the PCB fraction is included (Van Wouwe et al.
TEQs were calculated for each PCDD, PCDF, coplanar PCB, and mono-ortho PCB congener by multiplying the toxic equivalency factor by the congener concentration in picograms per gram (Van den Berg et al.
