The present article reviews the most important scientific literature on dioxins and PCBs found in poultry liver and their relation with food safety and consumers’ health. Dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are persistent organic pollutants with high chemical stability; they are lipophilic compounds and they are not destroyed by microbial, photochemical, chemical or thermal degradation. Dioxins and PCBs are ubiquitous environmental contaminants, which are present in all marine plant and animals, birds, mammals and humans and bioaccumulate through the food chain. In the last years, there has been concern regarding food contamination with different chemical substances and their effect on food safety. More particularly, at the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st century, there were a series of incidents related to dioxin and PCBs, which directly affected human or contaminated the soil and accumulated in feed and then in food products, such as poultry liver. It was shown in case of dioxin incident that tetra and penta-chlorinated congeners (the most toxic ones) accumulates selectively in poultry livers. Maximal concentrations have been fixed in the European legislation for dioxins and PCBs in food from animal origin, in order to protect the consumer. Data about background poultry liver contamination are scarce and the few available show levels below the legal limit for dioxins, but data are still lacking for DL-PCBs. [less ▲]

Dioxins, furans and PCBs are lipophilic anthropogenic contaminants that have found their way into marine food webs and accumulate in top predators such as marine mammals, adding a stress factor to an already vulnerable population. In this study 7 congeners of dioxins (PCDDs), 10 congeners of furans (PCDFs) and 4 congeners of coplanar PCBs (cPCBs) were determined using high resolution gas chromatography and mass spectrometry in the blubber of 19 juvenile harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) stranded along the Belgian North Sea coastline between 1995 and 2001. These results were contrasted with nutritional status (emaciated or not), sex and trophic level (through stable carbon and nitrogen isotope analysis). Mean blubber concentrations of SPCDD/Fs were 12.8 pg/g lw (lipid weight) and mean related toxicity 1.84 pg TEQs/g lw (TEQs = TCDD toxic equivalents). Mean cPCB concentrations were 223,5 pg/g lw and mean related toxicity 4,47 pg TEQs/g lw. The levels detected in these individuals were of the same order as those found in a previous study in the Wadden Sea (Bruhn, 1999). Both sexes show rather similar levels. No significant relationship was observed between stable carbon or nitrogen isotope values and pollutant levels. Concentrations and toxicity show a tendency to be higher in emaciated ndividuals than in nonemaciated ones. This could indicate a possible relationship between the nutritional status of the animals and dioxinlike pollutants (which could participate in weakening the animal). This situation should be further studied on adult individuals in order to obtain a more global view of the possible effects on the population. [less ▲]

The clinical and experimental uses of equine lung scintigraphy have largely expanded in recent years. Lung imaging using large animals is of great interest for the understanding of general lung physiology, for the knowledge of animal peculiarities, for the study and diagnosis of equine respiratory disorders as well as for the development of their treatment. This article surveys some methodological constraints due to the scanning of a noncooperative large-sized animal, reviews the contribution of equine nuclear imaging in lung physiology and pathology, and discusses future clinical and fundamental applications of lung scintigraphy.
