There were fewer primiparous women in the Inuit group than in the southern Quebec group (p = 0.
Most PCB congeners were detected more frequently in plasma samples from the Nunavik group than in those from the southern Quebec group (Table 2).
Smoking was not related to PCB 153 plasma concentration in the southern Quebec group.
However, oversampling of smokers in the southern Quebec group and of nonsmokers in the Nunavik group was performed to reach a balanced study design, thereby allowing us to test the effect of PCBs on CYP1A1 activity while controlling for the effect of tobacco smoking.
Body burden of PCBs observed in the Nunavik study group, as assessed by umbilical cord plasma concentrations expressed on a lipid basis, was consistent with that documented in earlier reports (35, 41), with concentrations of major PCB congeners being approximately 4-fold higher in the Nunavik group than in the southern Quebec group.
EROD activities measured in placental samples of Inuit women were not significantly higher than those measured in the southern Quebec group, suggesting that the level of exposure to dioxin-like compounds was not high enough to induce placental CYP1A1 activity in this population.
