Congener-specific PBDEs (ng/g lipids) by diagnostic group, children 24-60 months old, California, 2003-2005. Individual congener distributions are shown on the log scale for PBDEs in ng/g lipids, measured in plasma taken from children participating in the CHARGE Study (n = 94). Differences among the three groups (AU/ASD, pink; DD, tan; TD, green), are minimal. All measurements were made in blood samples collected after the diagnosis.
