The occurrence of storage of oxychlordane residues in general population human adipose tissue may indicate consistent previous exposure to chlordane insecticide and/or oxychlordane from many possible sources. With the inclusion of this pesticide metabolite in the human tissue residue monitoring program, significant trends and possible sources of exposure, as well as potential health effects may be assessed more accurately. Human toxicity, dose storage and response relationships, extent and distribution in humans, long term low level exposure effects and other factors including the determination of oxychlordane as a human metabolite of chlordane remain to be determined.
