05/01/1990 - "The levels of aromatic hydrocarbons in sediments of Puget Sound, Washington, are positively correlated with the prevalence of hepatic neoplasms and related lesions in English sole (Parophrys vetulus). "
05/01/1990 - "The hypothesis that these lesions in wild English sole can be caused by exposure to certain xenobiotic hepatotoxic and hepatocarcinogenic compounds in Puget Sound is based on: a) statistical associations between levels of aromatic hydrocarbons (sigma AHs) in sediment and prevalences of these idiopathic liver lesions, b) the contribution of sigma AHs in accounting for the variability in hepatic neoplasm prevalence in a logistic regression model, c) elevated odds ratios for several idiopathic hepatic lesion types in sole from polluted sites in Puget Sound, d) significant correlations between prevalences of idiopathic hepatic lesions and levels of fluorescent metabolites of aromatic compounds (FACs) in bile of English sole, and e) experimental induction of putatively preneoplastic focal lesions in English sole injected with a PAH-enriched fraction of an extract from a contaminated urban sediment from Puget Sound, that were morphologically identical to lesions found in wild English sole from the same site."
04/01/1987 - "Statistically significant (p less than or equal to 0.05) correlations have been found between the prevalences of hepatic neoplasms in English sole and the following parameters: sediment concentrations of aromatic hydrocarbons, and concentrations of the metabolites of aromatic compounds in the bile of affected sole. "
04/01/1987 - "Laboratory studies designed to evaluate the etiology of the liver neoplasms in English sole have also yielded evidence that is consistent with the view that high molecular weight aromatic hydrocarbons, e.g., benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), are hepatocarcinogens in English sole. "
04/01/1987 - "Because levels of aromatic hydrocarbons (AHs) in urban sediments are correlated with prevalences of liver neoplasms in English sole, we have initiated detailed studies to evaluate the effects of endogenous and exogenous factors on uptake, activation and detoxication of carcinogenic AHs, such as benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), using spectroscopic, chromatographic, and radiometric techniques.
