Congener-specific PBDEs (molar basis: pmol/g lipid) and selected sums by diagnostic group, CHARGE Study children 24-60 months old, California, 2003-2005. Congener distributions are shown on the log scale for PBDEs in pmol/g lipids, and sums of the lower brominated, higher brominated, or total measured PBDEs are also shown. Measurements were 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.
