In April 2000 researchers from around the world met in Lexington, Kentucky to bring together the very latest information on the chemistry and biological effects of the environmental pollutants known as Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs). The result is a comprehensive and extensive treatment of the very latest findings on all significant subjects relating to PCBs and their health risks. The thorough introduction and sixty-two scientific papers presented here represent the most up-to-date research by scientists in government, private industry, and academia.

Larry W. Robertson, professor in the Graduate Center for Toxicology, is the director of the University of Kentucky Superfund Basic Research Program.

Larry G. Hansen, professor at the University of Illinois, is the author of The Ortho Side of PCBs: Occurence and Disposition.

Purveys the quintessential of biological knowledge on PCBs. . . . It is the ideal handbook and reference work for both the biological researcher and the occupational scientist. -- Applied Occupational and Environmental Hygiene
