The method described has detected in blood 6 of the 8 isomers or metabolites of chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides known to occur in the fat of people in the general population of the United States, and it has detected 2 others in people with occupational or acute exposure. Although low recoveries are obtained of added materials apparently due to binding of some constituents of blood, this may offer some advantage. In any event, the concentration of chlorinated insecticides and related materials as detected by this method follows the pattern of exposure and recovery and thus permits toxicological evaluation.
