(2008).||Yusho Study Group||After Yusho patients had suffered chronic exposure to these chlorinated compounds for more than 35 years, the serum concentration of 2,3,4,7,8-PeCDF in blood was significantly related to arthralgia and decreased albumin/globulin ratio; the serum concentration of polychlorinated biphenyls was significantly related to ophthalmologic symptoms; and the serum concentration of polychlorinated quarterphenyl to increased total cholesterol.||2,3,4,7,8-
