Abstract: This study was performed to determine and compare persistent organic pollutant (POP) levels in different matrices in a female population. A total of 96 serum and 46 adipose tissue samples were collected from infertile women (n = 101) attending Centers for Reproductive Medicine in Belgium from 1996 to 1998. Gas chromatography with electron-capture detection was used to quantify residue levels on a lipid basis of seven organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) and seven polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). There was a strong association between adipose tissue and serum residues. The adipose tissue levels of CB-138, 153, 180 and p,p'-DDE were explained by the serum residues. Besides, the accumulation pattern for CB-153 and CB-180 in serum and adipose tissue are mirror images of each other.
